Solit had arrived on the Olinski feeling a bit out of sorts. He felt like he had been given a grand opportunity - he had been languishing as a regular Science Lieutenant aboard a Trafalgar-class Destroyer for the past ten years, and had only just now earned a third pip and a placement as a Chief Science Officer aboard one of the most powerful vessels in the entire fleet. He had practically an entire deck of laboratory space (with a couple of caveats) over which he was assigned to head. His department was the same size as some entire crews of ships. And yet, somehow, he couldn’t help shake the feeling that something was incredibly wrong.
Lt. Commander Idari had no way of knowing that he was right. A misadventure with the then-new Brazen-class USS Asimov, now reported as mutinied and wanted for treason, had completely altered his past, and therefore his present. In another life before the Asimov crash-landed on an uncharted planet on its maiden voyage, Solit had lived as a respected scientist who had eventually risen to the rank of Lt. Commander, and was, in fact, head of a research team on a Concord-class vessel. He had accepted the promotion to Commander to become the Asimov’s CSO, but with quite a few reservations, especially when he learned that the previous USS Asimov’s destruction was due to an individual bent on making Starfleet, and possibly the Federation, human-dominated. The first time the temporal anomalies on the planet affected him, his past changed so that now, he was merely a Chief Science Officer aboard the Trafalgar-class vessel where he started, and had only been promoted to Lieutenant Commander. However, the anomaly eventually removed him from the Asimov completely, and instead left him languishing on the USS Guilford for over a decade after reaching full Lieutenant in a standard eight years.
Idari, of course, did not recognize any of this. He only knew that he had finally gotten his career back on track, and he was not going to waste the opportunity. He came into the Conference Room, with a somewhat tentative step. This ship’s layout was unique in part because of what it was, but also what it represented. A ship this large, with a crew this large and roles so diverse, was the forefront of the fleet. True, after approving two carrier classes, Starfleet had begun to focus on smaller vessels, but the Olinski was still out there, big, imposing, and letting everyone know that the Federation’s citizens were under some powerful protection.
He walked to one of the offices connected to the room and touched the door panel to announce his presence.
“Lieutenant Commander Idari, reporting for duty.”
- Lt. Cmdr. Idari Solit, CSO
The Captain was aware that his new CSO was coming aboard and as such he had asked Cmd Balfor Kolar to attend this meeting with him. Kolar had forgotten more than most Science Officers would ever accumulate in their career.
“Enter Lt Cmd.” Came the voice of the Captain as the door slid open.
OOC: Want kolar here or do another one for the XO.
OOC: Lets do it together in the same meeting.
Solit walked through the CO’s door, a little bit hesitant, but hopeful.
“Hello, Captain,” Lt. Commander Idari said simply. “I am your new Chief Science Officer, as I am sure you’re aware. I hope I have come at an opportune time.”
- Lt. Cmdr. Idari, CSO
“Welcome to the USS Brian Olinski Lt.Cmd.” The Captain said in return.
Kolar gave the Captain a sidelong glance with one blink. That was his full on version of the side eye. Kolar had never liked a new CSO on the ship and while he was never anything but perfectly friendly and warm. He was territorial over that position. “The Olinski is a very busy ship, we don’t have much in the way of opportune times. So we welcome you at any chance we get.”
The Captain understood this to mean “I got this Captain.” He understood as well. He was still very critical of any new CoS as this was still in his mind his speciality.
He indicated with his hand for the new CSO to have a seat as he did so as well. He would let Kolar do as he pleased and made no effort to speak as he wanted his XO to take the lead with the new DH.
Solit tilted his head. A ship of 1700, and the command staff didn’t have anyone who could get their work delegated. Regardless, Lt. Commander Idari sat.
“As that is the case, I shall attempt to be brief.”
