Posted by Ensign David Sweeney (Science Officer) in Checking into the XO/CSO
David came aboard the USS Sentinel without much fanfare, but he was excited nonetheless. His first starship assignment came with great opportunities and great trepidation. He was handed a piece of information, the location of his quarters assignment. He walked through the ship until he found the right room. Small, but comfortable, he deposited his belongings on the bed and went off to find the CSO.

If he asked anyone, the first thing they’d say was “The biology lab.” It seemed this was where he spent nearly all of his time, unless he was needed somewhere else, or wanted on the bridge, or something. But if Ensign Sweeney were to check the Biology lab, they’d find no sign of him. He hadn’t been expecting a new officer meeting.
Instead, he was down in the planetary science, helping with the results of the study of a particular planet’s moons. Aldaria III had two moons, which orbited at different intervals, and it was something they were studying in their free time.
Because the jungle planet had two moons, it had longer days than earth and higher tides that pulverized its continents’ shores.

David did find certain advantages in seeing most of the ship before he met the CSO. He was however, a little bit concerned that he was not expected. He came to the correct lab and said “Excuse me, I’m looking for Lieutenant Commander Alden. I just arrived on the ship I’m due to check in.”
