Posted by Lieutenant Ush’ast Rah-Triton (Security Officer) in Pre Sim - Sha’s returning Counselor Eval
Se knew it was coming. She had been back on the ship a couple weeks and the order to take her refit eval was on her console when she got up that morning. The fact it was automatic, because it hadn’t been input since her return, made it an even worse reminder. She kissed Royal goodbye as he slept and headed for the Counselor’s office to see if a walk in at the beginning of the shift was possible. She and Royal had been sharing his quarters for over a week now. They had figured out her quarters were bugged and he was constantly making sure his wasn’t… anymore.
So when they were in her quarters, she was a run down, half broken half Klingon with survivor’s guilt. When they were away from the listening devices, she was a furious half Klingon wanting revenge for whoever set her up and left her for dead. The question in her mind, though she never voiced it to him, was which of the ‘her’ was really her?
She showed up at the Counselor’s office and tapped the chime, smiling as a few folks heading to morning briefings passed by. She wasn’t overly early in the morning, but she certainly hadn’t waited. She had been working third shift and Royal had been on second to see how they were doing. As her Department Head, she was impressed. He had taken over in her absence and done an amazing job with everyone. Even putting himself on the other shifts for a week at a time to be sure they knew he was there for every shift, regardless what other Security Chiefs did in the past or on other ships.
It had barely been one minute when she started to second guess herself and wonder if she had made a mistake coming here. Maybe she would just wait for the official summons… or order. She was about to turn and walk away.
Lt Sha Titon
There was no chance to turn and walk away, as the ‘chime’ was instead a signal to automatically open the door to the Counseling Suite. “We really need to just uninstall the door,” a voice muttered from inside. “Come on in, take a seat.”
As Sha would step through the doorway, she would be faced with a rather unusual sight. Well, unusual for a starship. A rustic reception area was arranged before her, with beige walls, wooden floors, chairs in one corner with magazines, and a wide desk in the middle where sat a Bolian man. He seemed fairly awake for the early hour, although the cup of what smelled like some very strong coffee sitting beside him might have contributed to that.
On the far wall was several wooden doors, built to swing instead of the standard opening method. It was certainly an interesting setup.
