Posted by Captain John Tiberius Glen (Captain) in Main Sim - Academy Hall 1a - Tinga’s Lecture
It was the late in the first day after their arrival to Earth when Tinga’s turn to lecture came up a comm call indicated her presence was needed an hour before the hall was to fill up with Cadets for her to prepare things.
=/\= Lieutenant Tinga please report to Academy Hall 1a for your lecture planning, Lieutenant Tinga to Academy Hall 1a please, thank you..=/\= Came a male voice announcer.
Tinga had been enjoying a bit of outdoor recreation but, luckily, was still in uniform. She made it to the hall quickly to get the lay of the land.
To help with their planning, and to give more general confidence boosting, Glen had promised to meet them all one hour before their lectures began, but he was running late.
The lay of the land for Tinga was a lecture hall able to fill about 50 cadets waiting for her inside was a pair of professor assistants that looked up as she entered. “..All lieutenant Tinga, good to meet you ma’am!” The first said coming forward to her as she would come off the entrance ramp for the room and come up on the lecture stage. “..I am assistant Vern, and this is assistant Zern my sister.” He said indicating both human twins.
”..A pleasure!” Xern said. “..We are at your disposal if you need help setting anything up for your presentation, so what is it you need?” She asked.
Tinga looked around the room and back at the twins.
“I’m not certain I need anything actually. I’m still trying to map out my presentation to be honest with you but I appreciate your assistance none the less.”
Tinga hoped she could find something for them to do. She understood that people din’t like to feel useless.
”..If you don’t need anything to setup that is fine, we can call the Cadets in early if you want to start your presentation now? Or did you want this time to do further mapping?” Xern asked.
William took a seat in the back of the room. He was deeply interested in whatever his crewmates were going to discuss.
Cross was also present, for the sole reason of how the lecture would go and the input those present would give.
Tinga had been taking notes and going over some things in her mind.
“Actually, now that I have a chance to think about it, I need the oldest model universal translator you have and several language clips. Kingon, the several dialects of Romulan if you have it, and something completely unrelated. Surprise me.” she said with a smile.
The Captain arrived shortly after. His various meetings and visits had all gone on longer than expected. He had offered to help, but he saw Tinga seemed to have everything in hand, with several identical looking assistants running around frantically, and bringing her pieces of equipment. Instead, he sat down next to William and Cross.
“Have I missed anything important?” he asked them.
‘’She has just started’‘ the doctor whispered to Glen ‘’ And has asked for the oldest model universal translator ‘’ hoping that the information provided would keep the Captain silent.
Nkosenye came in behind Glen and looked at the crew. Nodding to each, a slight smile to Cross, and he took a seat on the aisle so he could sit without cramming his large frame into the people around him. “I’m looking forward to her presentation. Indeed, everyone’s.”
Cross nodded back and though she had not missed his smile did not return it,for now the doctor wanted to keep their relationship secret…for it was still early days.
Tinga was surprised to see everybody there so early. There was nearly an hour till her presentation so, they had missed nothing.
