=/\=Frigga has no appointments until 1125 hours tomorrow. She is listed as on call between now and then should medical or psychiatry need her services.=/\=

“GALEN, make a note on her schedule for staff to contact me if she’s needed.”

=/\=Do you wish me to rewrite the routine parameters, Captain?=/\=

Frigga had wandered behind the desk and then stopped by the wall near the replicator, sitting, and then began to whine giving Dira an expectant look.


Dira chuckled. “I was getting there, but I suppose it’s only fair that you let me know,” she said as she moved to the replicator. She ordered a dog bowl of water and set it down and then queried GALEN for the food that was normally ordered for Frigga. She set that down when it was replicated. “There you go.”

Frigga went after the bowl of water and sniffed the food and went back to the water. She drank almost all of it and then ate a little of the food because it was offered.

For a moment Dira stood there with her hands on her hips and mused that this was not unlike one of your friends with a baby suddenly needing a babysitter and while you love the child and were great with them, you really had no experience caring for one yourself. “Guess I’m getting a crash course, aren’t I?”

Captain Myqian, CO

Frigga looked up at her, tongue lolling in a laugh. She barked once and then walked a circle around Dira and then laid down under one of the office chairs.


Moving around her desk, Dira sat in her chair and grabbed a PADD. She was happy to let Frigga be there if that was where she was comfortable, but she would have to see what other provisions she’d need to have on hand up here, as well as get stuff for her quarters. With the PADD, she called up the training program she knew existed for those who were learning to work with Frigga. Since she had been adamant about the canine being a member of her crew, it would be good for her to learn how to work with her as well, and that might in turn help her know the probably many small details about the working dog that she had no clue about. And maybe answer the one question that came to mind: where did Frigga do her business? That last thing she needed was her to have an accident in her office!


The training program was loaded into the computer and could run on any of the holodecks. The full program could take one to two weeks depending on how much time per day the person put in, and there was a test at the end. There were text files as well that included the commands that Frigga answered to and what her response would be, her certifications, and the skills she had to complete to earn those certifications, and a written transcript of the program.

Frigga was a quiet dog and stayed under the chair while Dira worked.


There was a chime at the door an, as it slid open, Sinclair walked in looking at a PaDD. “Captain, sorry to bother you but I just-” and his eyes spied the dog. He lowered the PaDD and smiled. “Well, hello Frigga. It is good to see you.” He looked at Dira quizzically and then said “Am I interrupting? I can come back, Captain.”

Sinclair, XO

Dira grinned at her first officer. “Not at all. I’m dogsitting, since the Kanes have taken an impromptu honeymoon.” She got up and moved around her desk. “She’s off-duty, so you can say hi.” She bent down and looked at the canine. “Say hi to Commander Sinclair, Frigga?”

She gestured to the PADD. “Is that for me?”
