The carpet was fresh in a way that the previous ship’s had not been. Even though people had stepped all over the carpets on the new ship, the fibers were still so new that no amount of weight would bear them down. The Turbolift was surprisingly sooth, though it should not have been a shock to Zoi. Even though everything was new on this ship, she had served on so many older ships, that new seemed a bit alien.
Zoi entered the Bridge just as Taylor put on the crown and laughed. “Well, I didn’t expect to see that, but I am glad you are taking so well to your queenly role Captain.” She didn’t mind that other people were on the Bridge, especially the Captain and the XO who had every right to be here first. She smiled warmly at Dira before stepping over to the tactical station and grazed her fingers over the flat surface of the displays, careful not to do anything to disturb any settings.... or you know… torpedos.
Dira let her gaze linger on Zoi, meeting her smile with a warm one of her own before casually gesturing to the centre chair and returning her gaze to Willow. “Well? Ready? Let’s try them out.”

Willow chuckled as Zoi commented. “I’m taking a lesson in not taking myself too seriously Lieutenant.” She said and grinned at Dira. Turning back to the chair she quietly moved the small tribble again and settled into it. The seat was firm but comfortable and she relished in the feeling of sitting in it as the ships first commanding officer. This was her seat. Made for her even if there were other ships of the class out there eventually this moment was all she cared about.
“Hard to take ourselves too seriously just now, we do have tribbles in our hands,” Dira quipped. She allowed Willow a moment to take it all in before she took sat down. In taking that seat for the first time, she had accepted her role n this ship and all it meant.
“Oh I could get used to this…” she said to Dira, padding the arms in a very cat like manner
“So what do you think of the new digs?” She asked Zoi looking over at tactical.
She had to smile at Captain Taylor enjoying her new seat. Her position was a weighty one, even if she herself was not. A comfortable seat should be one of the first things Star Fleet should provide for captains. And she was glad that the captain was endeavoring to take herself less seriously. Zoi looked up as she realized the question was meant for her and let her eyes wander the space of the new bridge once more. It was regulation Star Fleet in color scheme but the styling was more modern and it felt more sleek and efficient. Her grin only widened. “I can imagine getting into quite a lot of trouble on this ship, can’t you?”
Dira turned and looked back over her shoulder. “Bite your tongue, Lieutenant!” she said seriously before winking. “We’re a medical ship. There are rules. You never ever complain about how quiet it is, and you never invite trouble your way. And if you think it’s superstitious nonsense, boy do I have some stories!” she said with an open laugh.
