With the lack of a large Security force onboard the Ogawa, Lieutenant Kyle Anders thought it would be best to see what the rest of the crew had on offer in terms of their combat skills. After sending out a general message to the crew, Kyle made his way to Holodeck Two, waiting at the door to see who made an appearance…

-Lieutenant Kyle Anders: Security Officer-

Octavia stood in the centre of the holodeck, with her career progressing the way faster than she imagined but mostly due to her own initiative and willingness to learn and take on extra jobs she was excited at the prospect of learning another trade and basic security was something that she had to do to pass through the next phase. “Good Morning Lieutenant” She smiled brightly, bobbing on her heels, ever since meeting Kyle she always found a reason to say hello.

“Ahh Octavia,” Kyle grinned, “Thank you for coming. How’s your morning so far?” Kyle had a fondness for Octavia that he hadn’t really expressed since Ruvre left the ship, but he knew this would probably be a business venture only.

-Lieutenant Kyle Anders: Security Officer-

“Oh you know how it is sometimes, slow start but as the day goes” She gave a all shrug, “You find yourself in your best gym wear ready for some security training!” Raains good mood and positive can do attitude was often infectious, and she enjoyed spreading her joy. “How about you? It seems like forever since we last got to talk! Guess we’ve both been busy !” There was truth behind the words Octavia had been busy but as much as she enjoyed Kyle’s company she felt that giving him a wide berth outside of the professional capacity was a good idea, given how he often had an effect on her. She wasnt even aware that Ruvre had left.

Kyle grinned, “I feel that lass, lately the Ogawa seems to be getting busier.” He turned to a console on the wall of the Holodeck and tapped a key, within seconds a row of phasers appeared in front of Octavia, “Which is why I arranged these training sessions for whoever wanted them.” Anders winked, “Pick your poison lass.”

-Lieutenant Kyle Anders: Security Officer-

Octavia smiled looked to the Phasers and then to Kyle, “Whats a lass and urm…” She seemed nervous and like usually in these kind of situations of uncertainty began to turn a light pink, which was always made more prominent by her dark trill spots. “Why are the phasers poisonous? Should I have brought gloves?” He hand hovered tentatively over them but she appeard as if she was trying to tame a snake.

  • Octavia Raain

Kyle laughed openly, “Sorry Crewman,” he said through his laughs, “‘Lass’ is a Yorkshireism for ‘Lady’ or ‘Miss’, and ‘Pick Your Poison’ is just a way of saying take your pick. Barmen in the 20th and 21st Centuries used the phrase to ask people what drink they wanted.”

-Lieutenant Kyle Anders: Security Officer-

Pondering the word and playing it around in her head she finally smiled, “I think I understand.” She looked from Kyle to the phaser rack. “This lasses poison.” Picking up the most centered phaser she held it carefully. “You?” She asked wondering if they’d be shooting each other.

(SORRY! Super busy at work!)

OOC: No worries! Me too! xD

Kyle grinned, “I’m afraid I’m only an observer in this process lass,” he turned to the holodeck console on his right and tapped a control, “Computer, add tactical target range Alpha 63.” Around the officers, a series of moving multicoloured spinning discs materialised from thin air, “I think you can guess what you might need to do with this one lass?” Anders winked.

-Lieutenant Kyle Anders: Security Officer-

She smiled, annoyed at herself for how charming she found him. “Duh” The young Trill finally replied before turning to face the disc. Octavia recalled the small amount of training she had but mostly pulled on her hosts previous memories of firing weapons. “Ready.” She called out, wanting to make sure she didn’t jump the phaser so the saying went.

“Winner buys the first round in the Mess Hall after this?” Anders asked with a wink, mounting a phaaser rifle of his own to his pack and turning to face the disc.

-Lieutenant Kyle Anders: Security Officer-



‘Tay figured she’d be the one buying the drinks after their training session was over but somehow she didn’t mind that idea. She’d spent a lot of time on the ship with many different people but never really getting to know anyone, perhaps maybe that was about to change.

The first target zipped into view, it remained still before moving to the left before heading back. Not a great shot she did have the nact for picking up patterns. She waited as it moved once more before firing hitting the target.

OOC” Thankyou so much for keeping this post alive and being patient! I hope to be more active in the coming weeks now the course is almost over!

Octavia Raain

Kyle started with a trick he’d learned from his father when he was younger. Raising one foot slightly off the floor, he spun on his heel and bounced a phaser blast off the disc as it spun towards him. He grinned at Octavia as he fired another shot, but didn’t see the next disc coming towards his head, just managing to clear it before it headed back to Tay.

OOC: You’re more than welcome! I feel the pain of doing a degree and trying to keep up with this! xD
