Mac had finished writing her report from the RTF side of the mission namely her views and Biggs additions of what they felt could have been done differently. Though the loss of Davis was still smarting, there were still officers that could, and would fill the space left by Davis’ death, given time and training at any rate.

Mac had for once not added any additional languages to her report. She actually respected the Captain enough to not try and upset her on purpose just yet. Though the notice that she was summoned to meet with her Captain had Mac wondering if someone else had complained about her sassing them? Sure she had sassed several folks within the first hours of boarding, she’d been out of uniform, and had felt no need to keep with ranks as long as she wasn’t dealing with her immediate head of department, the first officer or the Captain, so she hadn’t behaved as well as perhaps she should’ve.

Mac had a cheeky grin on her face as she rang the chime on the Ready room doorway. She had narrowly missed getting into big trouble the last time she had the nerve to ask “What is the Ready Room Ready for exactly?” She always thought it should be the Captain’s Sea Cabin or their office. Hearing it called ‘Ready Room’ always tugged at her want to be a brat.

OOC: feel free to edit the title if you wish or anything else :)

As Mac approached the ready room, Iphigenia was reviewing the latest mission reports on her tablet. She had just finished reading through the updates on personnel assignments and was now considering potential adjustments to the training schedule in light of recent events. The loss of Davis weighed heavily on her mind, but she knew she had to focus on moving forward and ensuring the readiness of her team.

When the chime sounded, signaling Mac’s arrival, Iphigenia set aside her tablet and composed herself. She knew Mac had a tendency to push boundaries, but she also recognized her potential and valued her contributions to the team. As the door slid open, revealing Mac’s cheeky grin, Iphigenia couldn’t help but feel some amusement.

“Come in, Lieutenant,” Iphigenia said, gesturing for Mac to enter. “Thank you for coming on such short notice.”

Iphigenia motioned for Mac to take a seat across from her desk before settling into her own chair. She studied Mac for a moment, considering her words carefully before speaking. “I wanted to discuss your recent report on the RTF mission,” she began, keeping her tone measured. “I appreciate your insights and Biggs’ contributions, but I also noticed a few areas where we could improve our approach. But before we get started I would like your honest opinion on how you think the mission went. Tell me something you did not put in your report.”

Mac nodded softly and took her seat in a smooth graceful motion, as she settled on the seat across from her Captain her expression flickered slightly as she hesitated to reply, she bit the inside of her bottom lip slightly before she took a breath, and looked at her Captain directly in the eyes as she spoke, “We should have been running as soon as we noticed that the phasers were not affecting the worm-like creature that attacked. Standing ground is too ingrained in the training. We need to recognize the signs of what is being affected and what isn’t so we can avoid problems next time.” Mac looked down as she finished speaking, “My opinion at least Captain.” She added softer but honestly.

RTF Leader

Iphigenia listened to Mac’s response, noting the hint of hesitation in her expression. As she spoke, Iphigenia couldn’t help but admire her dedication to the team and her willingness to speak her mind.

“I appreciate your honesty, Lieutenant,” Iphigenia replied, her tone showing both understanding and encouragement. “Recognizing when to adapt our tactics is crucial, especially in unpredictable situations like the one we faced. Your insight will help us refine our training protocols moving forward.”

She paused for a moment, gathering her thoughts before continuing. “I also wanted to commend you on your quick thinking during the mission. Your leadership and decision-making were instrumental in ensuring the safety of the team. It’s clear that your experience and training have prepared you well for these types of challenges.”

Iphigenia leaned forward slightly, her expression a mix of professionalism and genuine concern. “However, I do want to emphasize the importance of communication during missions. It’s essential that we maintain open lines of communication to effectively coordinate our actions and respond to unexpected threats. I’ll be incorporating additional communication drills into our training regimen to address this.”

Mac nodded her head as she listened to Iphigenia speaking. She didn’t feel the need to comment as of yet and what the Captain was saying made sense. Communication was just as important as the rest of their training. She would have to work on speaking of her moves or plans when on mission but there was time for taking that into account later.

She leaned back in her chair, offering Mac a reassuring smile. “Overall, I’m confident that with your leadership and the dedication of the team, we’ll continue to excel in our future missions. Having said all that, I have an offer for you,” Iphigenia said, straightening in her chair.

“I believe that in addition to being our RTF leader, you would excel in the role of Chief Tactical Officer. Your quick thinking and sharp wits make you well-suited for the position. What do you say Lieutenant Kindle? Are you up for it?”

Mac blinked quickly clearly not expecting that to be what the Captain was going to say. she figured she might have asked her to help with security or intelligence as she had done on previous assignments but to be asked to take on Tactical as well as RTF lead well she did like a challenge or so she often said when asked. “I will do my very best, Captain Henao.” she said with her cheeky grin in full force showing off her dimples, she raised her left eye brow slightly as she added, “Though does that mean I have to move my office or can I do everything from the RTF office and report to the bridge or whatever when you need me to from there?”

She didn’t really want to run from one office to another for working on reports, but if it was what was needed she would figure it out, worst case she might count it as part of her exercise for the day. Specially if the offices were on different decks of the ship. That would be a nightmare in times of Red Alert. “Which should I prioritize for Red Alert status RTF or Tactical or just be ready for either one?” Mac added after a moment of thought of the offer and possible situations it could bring up.

Iphigenia noted the surprise in Mac’s expression before her trademark cheeky grin emerged. She admired her readiness for a challenge, evident in her prompt acceptance of the offer. “Your enthusiasm is noted, Lieutenant Kindle,” Iphigenia replied, nodding in acknowledgment of Mac’s willingness to take on the additional responsibility.

“As for your question, your primary focus during Red Alert status will be on your role as RTF leader,” Iphigenia explained, considering the logistics. “However, I expect you to remain prepared to switch to your duties as Chief Tactical Officer if the situation demands it. We’ll work out the logistics regarding your office and reporting arrangements to ensure efficiency and effectiveness.”

Iphigenia presented a small smile, conveying confidence in Mac’s ability to handle the dual roles. “Thank you for your dedication to the team, Lieutenant. I’m looking forward to seeing how you excel in this new position.”
