“Lt. I must say your background and indeed professional experience is impressive. One of the reasons I decided to accept you on the Olinski. I see a lot of research background and that’s great. However do you think your up to the change. The Olinski is the tip of the spear for the Fleet. The kind of research you might find yourself doing is in the moment and the decision neds to be quick and the right one or we all die.” The Captain asked.

Parker CO

Thomas nodded, considering the man’s words. He wasn’t wrong; Thomas had spent a decent amount of time on teams designing starships and warp engines instead of actually working on them. “I knew that needed to be corrected,” he responded. “I’ve since spent time on explorers and cruisers - and don’t get me wrong, that is worthwhile work that is the future of the Federation.”

He mulled his next words for a moment. “But I felt my skills were best put to use elsewhere. Somewhere the decisions need to be quick, and the right one,” he echoed the captain’s words. “I’m not saying I’m the best engineer, sir. But I think I’m the right one.”

“Very good. Time will tell but I tend to agree with you.” The Captain said. “Have you had the chance to study the Olinski?”

Parker CO

Thomas nodded. “From almost the moment I received my orders.” He paused. “Though that’s on paper, sir. I’ve found that it’s always little different than you expect in person,” he added with a grin.

CE Faraday

“Spoken true.” The Captain agreed. “Listen Lt. We have officers and personnel here for any number of reasons from any number of backgrounds. I’m excited to have you. However the only thing I really care about is that when the lights turn red on the ship you and your department are ready to go.”

Parker CO

Faraday nodded. “And that’s why I’m here. I should get down there and get to know this old girl then, unless you have other questions for me.” He paused briefly before continuing. “I do have one question - the fighter mechanics - I was unable to determine their chain of command. Do they answer to me, or to the CAG?”

CE Faraday

“The fighter wing to include all mechanics are a closed unit. Every one answers to the CAG and then the CAG to me.” The Captain answered. “However you will find the CAG is easy to work with if you need. Now Bay and the structure, walls, behind the walls, floor etc..thats yours. Have a good first day Lt. Your dismissed.”

Parker CO

Thomas nodded slowly. “Reasonable. Thank you, sir.”

He stood, nodded, and left.
