Ella had deposited her things in her quarters quickly, she didn’t want to waste time getting to know the room that would be hers for the foreseeable future, besides none of her things had been delivered from the shuttle yet and she wanted to decorate when they were in. So instead she made her way to the Captain’s ready room, Ella had already sent the Captain a message form the LCAR System in her quarters to inform her of her arrival and that she would be making a stop by shortly and being prompt was one of Ella’s characteristics.

She entered through the doos to the CIC, which gave her time to stop and take in her surroundings. It was truly something and better than any bridge she’d been on to date. People in a rainbow of coloured uniforms were going about the shift and performing the tasks they had been giving, she even noticed some of those in gold standing by security consoles and talking to one another looking in her direction, she smiled and continued over to the Captain’s ready room which had access onto the CIC. She pressed the door chime and waited patiently.

She caught her reflection in the reflective material of a bulkhead and she could see from her waist up, she was still wearing her security uniform since there was no better way to meet with the Captain and atop her head was her families gold and quartz head chain. Below and where the bulkhead stopped being a reflection was a skirt and knee-high boots. Yep, that’s right nothing was more fun than delivering justice, negotiating peace deals or investigating a string of thefts than doing it in a skirt and boots.

“Come in,” Called a voice from within, triggering the doors to hiss open to reveal the ready room contained within. The Lieutenant could see the fair-haired Captain at work at her desk, she had glanced up as the doors opened to regard the newcomer with her dark eyes. As her head was upright, instead of bent over her work, the captain’s pips on her uniform collar were visible.

“You must be Lieutenant Lokaa, come in,” she waved with a smile, “I’m Captain Freja Andreassen, welcome to the Chimera.”

Nodding once and entering the ready room she moved a few feet so that she was near the centre of the room and stood at ease in front of the captain’s desk. “Thankyou Captain that’s correct, thank you for accepting my request to move here, I know that me applying for the Assistant chief role was a long shot and honestly didn’t expect a posting aboard a ship like the Chimera was actually possible. I promise to make it worth the risk, so thank you Ma’am” Ella Smiled and waited.

The Captain momentarily blinked, looking down at a PaDD to her right and then smirking knowingly, “Leave it to Command to neglect a few things. Your record is exlemplary Lieutenant, I had actually requested you as my new Chief of Security. As it is, you’d have to do the role anyway temporarily while I recruit a new one, so why not do it on a permanent basis?”

~Freja Andreassen~

As an Elasian Ella was very rarely left speechless, she liked the sound of her own voice and well she had an exquisite accent but on this occasion, she just stood there like a Elasian Ice-deer caught in shuttle search lights. When she finally found her voice it was the usual composed one she was used too. “As in.. THE Chief of Security, not Assitant” *of course idiot, that’s what she just said,” he mind was racing a little to quick for her to comprehend so she did what she usually did in this situation took a breath. “I dont know what to say Captain, Thankyou so much!” If she ever allowed herself to cry she would guess this was one of those times.

“Good, then it’s settled,” Freja nodded, “Welcome to the Chimera, Security Chief. As you are definitely new to being a Chief, I’ll start off this brief meeting with laying out my expectations for your department. We should receive our orders shortly, so you’ll want to complete your boarding check in with medical and take an inventory of your department to see if there’s anything you need before we depart space dock. You’ll likely receive a few officers as well. Any questions so far?”

~Freja Andreassen~

She shook her head, “No, none.” She let out a slightly nervous laugh, “At least for now Ma’am.” Ella was still in a euphoric shock she’d not have thought that she would ever make chief and now here she was skipping a level, passing go and collecting her 200 bars of Latinum. She was going to have to find someone to celebrate with later. “I’ll have an inventory check done before we depart and my check-ins done.”

“Good, I generally have an open door policy, if you need advice on a problem, come to me or to my XO, we will help without judgment. I come from a fighter pilot background and believe that in order to be strongest, we work together, not apart.” Freja replied, “If you don’t have any further concerns or questions, you are free to get started Lieutenant,” she finished with a smile.

Thinking Ella looked into herself for any question, it was more a personal question than a professional one but it was certainly one of her bigger worries right now, “How will the rest of the department feel about me? Being so young and well… new” She said, Ella could still smell the academy on her and she’d been handed he opportunity of a life time here, she tried not to let her jitters ruin the moment.

“The crewmen will be fine with it, they’re used to young new officers coming in,” Freja explained, “My only bit of unsolicited advice is to do what you can to create a rapport with the enlisted personnel, particularly those who’ve been on a few tours. If you respect them, they will move mountains for you. As for the officers, right now, you are the highest ranked member of the security team and none meet the requirements for DH as yet and none of them even applied for the role, if someone’s sore about you taking over, they either need to be made to fall in line or be disciplined over it.”

~Freja Andreassen~

Certainly more sure of herself now she smiled, “I hope I dont have to discipline anyone on the first day and I’ll certainly try and create a rapport with my department but not to close” She said, sometimes being to close had its negatives and it was about finding that fine line between friend and boss. “Any other advice before I go and have a minor breakdown in the turbo lift?” She was joking of course and knew she’d do a great job even if she was winging it.
