It didn’t take Avik long to arrive at the shuttle bay from the bridge. While she could’ve informed them all on the comms, she felt it took too long. It didn’t help she held herself responsible for this mess. An illogical sentiment, but one she couldn’t help.
The moment she stepped off the Bridge, she knew Marsh or another senior officer would take her place. This crew proved themselves repeatedly with each new mission. She came to appreciate them for it.
When she saw the team, her attention turned to them.
Cassidy was already waiting with another guard. Given that Donnely was with the XO, it would be overkill to have more than three guards for one person. She focused her attention on Avik.
“A situation developed and forced us to save the ship and its pilot. I will admit we have little knowledge or understanding of the occupant.” She didn’t voice that she needed to say it out loud and in person, but observant individuals would notice it.

The back quarter of the warp craft was charred and the hull bubbled in places as its brief touch with high intensity radiation had melted and fused part of the metal hull plates together. Luckily the rest of the ship, and the miniature fusion reactor, had been covered by the Europa’s shields and seemed none the worse for wear. The only apparent entry point to the ship was what looked like an airlock or docking ring. Going extra vehicular was not a design consideration but docking up with the space station clearly was. Any sensor sweep would should feeble life signs in the cockpit section.
