After meeting with the Security Chief Magnus made his way up to the Main Science Labs. This was to be the main course of his trip across the ship. The Genesis was a science-focused vessel and he would be reading a lot of Scientific reports during his time here. For the third time this day he checked to see if any hairs were out of place then straightened out his uniform and pressed the chime to the CSO’s office.

XO

An NE was passing by, and stopped at the sight of the First Officer waiting outside Lt. Michaels’ office. She cleared her throat softly.

“Excuse me sir, are you looking for Lieutenant Michaels?” the NE asked, a hint of nervousness in her voice. “He’s in his ‘other’ office” The way the woman emphasized the word other was peculiar. “Stellar Cartography. One deck down sir.”

“Why thank you ensign” Magnus said with a smile before turning around and moving on. He hadn’t even considered that the man wouldn’t be in his office.

Upon arrival at the Stellar Cartography lab, the XO would find David standing in front of the large viewscreen. On the display was a star chart, and it was clear that the systems were not their current location.

-David Michaels, CSO

“Planning your vacation Lieutenant?” The Icelander said with humorous intent as he walked up to the viewscreen. “I wasn’t aware that there was much work to be done here” He said in a curious manner.

XO

David smiled. “If only…” He said softly, then shook his head slightly as if brushing off the idea. “No, not much work to be done here, that is true. Which is one reason I do sometimes come here to work. I can be alone with my thoughts and don’t have one of my sub-department heads ringing the chime every five minutes.” David let out a soft chuckle.

“Glad you enjoyed the little get together we had for you the other night,” David said. “Riley was quite excited about it, and I know it made him happy that everyone was enjoying themselves as they were.”

-David Michaels, CSO

Magnus nodded “It was an entertaining night, please send my regards if I don’t meet him today.” He placed his hands behind his back, not looking from the map “The Captain asked me to meet with the department heads and have a little discussion about their respective departments. I suppose I’ll be spending most of my day with you overviewing your multiple subdepartments” He said with a half chuckle “Tell me, your departments do they generally run their own experiments and the like under the direction of each Sub-DH or do you direct the general direction they go?” He asked with genuine curiosity.

XO

“I give them considerable freedom,” David said, a smug smile creeping on his lips. “Although there are times where they do follow any…” He paused, the smile getting bigger. “… Guidelines that I provide them.” He let out a soft chuckle. “We do have quite a large department, but I believe things run smoothly for us.”

David noticed the XO’s eyes fixated on the map. He let out a sigh. Best to get the elephant in the room cleared up. “It’s my home,” He said, nodding towards the viewscreen, folding his arms across his chest.

-David Michaels, CSO

“Indeed” Magnus said with a half-smile “Indeed it is. Is your home a part of some project of yours or are you simply nostalgic?” He asked out of honest curiosity, there wasn’t any malice in voice.

XO

David sighed. “Nostalgia I suppose.” He gave his shoulders a shrug. “It’s not like I’ll ever be going back there. This is just a representation of how things were when I left. It could app be changed now.” There was a sadness in his eyes, but it only lasted a moment.

Switching off the main view screen, David turned back to the XO, a smile on his face. “Where would you like to go first on our little tour?”

-David Michaels, CSO

Magnus didn’t look from the map for a moment as he contemplated the Scientists words. Turning to face the man and returning his smile “Oh you decide, science has never been my area of expertise and a Science vessel has too many places for me to even think where to begin.”

XO

David nodded. “Perhaps we will start on Deck 4 with our botany and hydroponics bays. Did you know that some of my team have organized a small group of chefs for the crew mess? They grow a lot of produce and a variety of herbs and serve fresh cooked meals to the crew a few times a week. It’s been a great project for getting the crew involved and working together.”

-David Michaels, CSO

“No I didn’t” Magnus responded with delighted surprise “Now that’s something I can get behind. It’s rare enough to be able to eat fresh food on Starships, let alone one that’s currently assigned on an exploratory mission” He said with a genuine smile on his face “And it pushes the crew to get along, growing it’s familial relations and boosts morale. I’m impressed, Lieutenant.” He said as they walked “Are there any such large projects currently going on?” He asked.

XO

“We do have a few things,” David said, nodding. “Ensign Tigress in the zoology lab has quite a collection of critters that she looks after. Mostly specimens that we rescue due to injury or abandonment and we nurse back to health.” They arrived at the botany bay on Deck 4, and David walked through the doors, stopping just inside to let the XO admire the space.

There were several rows of growing beds, elevated on pedestals. Various green leafy vegetables sprouted out from the dirt, as well as various flowering plants. Farther back in the room were the hydroponic growing areas, and past that stood a few rows of small trees and vines that bore various fruits and vegetables.

“This started out kind of small,” David said. “A few various herbs and vegetables we discovered along our travels. Then more crew became interested in the growing and cooking aspect of the project and it’s really taken off.”

-David Michaels, CSO

Magnus looked around the bay with a look of admiration and glee “Very impressive Micheals, I’ve served on ships with Hydroponic bays before but nothing of this complexity or magnitude” He smiled at the Scientist “Now all we need is a Chicken pen and this will be the perfect place” He mused “So flaura, fauna.. what don’t you have?” He asked jokingly.

XO

Bump

It’s was at about that time that the officers heard a growl from be hind one of the bushes. Tigeress snuck up behind them. “ sorry guys but midnight needed a change of routine board tigers lead to some very dangerous medical problems. Not to mention behavior issues that are a nightmare and a half to fix” Tigeress said the the two seater officered. When midnight say Tigeress parochial the two in a friendly manner he stopped growing and came out from behind the bushes. The two of them were fairly stunning to look at both had black stripes. Though midnight was orange and tigress with white. “ he is actually a sweet hart ones he gets to know you Ben can tell you all about him” She said .

Ensign Tigeress

OOC: hope you don’t mind Tigeress dropping in.
Christina

Magnus smiled at the pair “I have no doubt about it Ensign” He said as he looked at Midnight “Hello Midnight, I’m Magnús. Lieutenant Micheals here was showing me the hydroponics bay, do you like it here?” He asked with a friendly smile.

XO

Tigress tried to hide her smile. ” You know he is a bangle tiger right he do not speak English and he can take your hand off in one bite” Tigress said. midnight stared at the stranger for a moment before approaching him. ” Don’t Move, he is not a pet and he can seriously hurt you.” Tigress said in a low voice.

midnight sniffed the XO then growled to see his reaction.” He is testing you, give him a minuet.” Tigress said with the same low and adhortative tone as before. After a few tense moments the big cat sat in front of the XO and pawed at his leg. the cat was carful not to scratch him. ” he like you and is inviting you to pet him” Tigress translated. the strange tone in her voice gone.
Ensign Tigress

Magnus smiled “I am well aware of that Ensign” He said as he placed his hand carefully near the animal’s neck “I’ve found it safest to discuss directly with any animal that has claws as if I woulda humanoid” He seemed oddly at ease with the feline, it seemed this wasn’t his first encounter with such a beast. He then gave the Ensing a sharp look “However, I expect that any animal that can cause potential harm to any of this ship’s crew to be properly restrained.” He said looking back down at the animal, his tone or pitch never changed. His head cocked slightly “I assume that he’s good to be on this ship because he enjoys your presence?” He asked the woman.
