Peter arrived in the shuttlebay almost fifteen minutes after he’d left the Bridge. He’d stopped by his office to arm himself properly before going down. In the Turbolift a reflexively checked the knives in his sleeves, the back of his neck, his lower back and then flexed his legs to feel for the ones hidden in his boots. His friends often mocked his overabundance of bladed weapons but he found them comforting, his time spent out of Starfleet ingrained that in him although he rarely needed to use them. As always he muttered to himself “Knives don’t run out of energy cells”. He chuckled drily, he’d never seen a phaser run out of energy in his life but he had experienced inhibitor fields before.
He was joined by a young NE security officer he didn’t recognize and the pair entered the Shuttle and began the pre-launch sequence “NE Tessa is it not?” He asked her and was given a slow nod “Let’s go” He said as he started the launch sequence and set the coordinates for the strange alien Vessel.
