Posted by Commander Michelle Allen (Acting Captain) in Starbase 257 - Arrival of the Viking crew
It had felt like a longer journey on the USS Pennington than it actually was. Michelle had spent her days writing reports and checking in with the various members of the crew.
When they finally arrived at Starbase 257, it felt like she could finally breathe and start to put what had happened behind her.
Walking down the gangway and into the Starbase, she felt the buzz of activity, excitement and curiosity surrounding their arrival. She had been informed that many of their new crew had already arrived at the Starbase and was waiting patiently for new orders. She herself didn’t even know what would become of them, if they would be given a new ship, or simply given new assignments.
She was greeted at the end of the gangway by a Starbase NE from the security department, holding a PaDD and giving out assignments for temporary quarters.
“Commander Michelle Allen,” She said, looking at him sternly.
“Ahh, yes,” The NE said. “You have been assigned temporary living quarters Beta-Six-Three-Two-Nine. I also have a note here requesting that you report to the Fleet Commander’s office at your earliest convenience.”
“Of course,” Michelle said flippantly, tucking a stray strand of hair behind her ears. “Have all the crew of the Viking been accounted for?”
The NE nodded. “We are still disembarking the remainder of the crew from the Pennington, but I believe there are no discrepancies from your crew roster.”
“Very well,” Michelle said. “Carry on.”
She stood to the side to watch as the crew she barely knew exited the Pennington and made their way onto the Starbase.

“You alright Captain?” Peter said to the Acting Captain, despite the fact that they no longer had a ship he felt the title was necessary for crew morale, they’d already lost too many friends. In his right hand he held a curved sabre in a hilt and in his left he held a photo frame.
