Joseph looked at the Klingon leave “Klingons are the only people I know who refer to my wife as my bride” he said with a slight smile looking at O’Harra the only person left in the room with him “Over Forty years of marriage. I wonder if it’s a translation issue” He said thoughtfully then looked at Brianna. “I realize we’ve not had many conversations since you arrived. I understand you are former Starfleet” He swirled the liquid in his glass.

Commissioner Karlson

Brianna just watched as the others departed. Somehow she had managed to remain dumbstruck as she had been volunteered to be the introduction between Urg and the Governor. And she hadn’t protested.

When it was just her and the Commissioner, she leaned back and shook her head as he spoke of the ‘bride’ comment. “I think it’s meant as a compliment, either way. As to myself, yes. I was Star Fleet. I was a miner for the Federation for almost twenty years. I was part of the latest expansion and settling of Alpha Centauri’s last mining location and colony. After several tours, I got tired of being told where to go and where to dig. So I took off on the next transport and here I am.” She opened her arms to encompass all of OED. “I asked the Governor for a job and you all were in need of a Head of Mining. So that’s how I ended up here. As for the rest,” she glanced towards the door where Urg had disappeared. “Well you heard that story. Seems there is more for me here than rocks.” She wasn’t exactly sure what the more was. She just knew this was the beginning of something in particular and she had to pay attention to make sure she didn’t miss it when it happened.

Joseph smiled “Perhaps there is. Oed is an interesting place. Some days it’s just like Earth, peaceful and calm. And other times we’re reminded that it is a border colony very far from the centre of the Federation. Riots, kidnappings, murders, shootouts at police stations. Sometimes I feel like a small-town sheriff of ancient times more than the Chief of a large Police force.”

Commissioner Karlson

“Or perhaps the parent of a large family of undisciplined children?” She laughed and shook her head. “I do not envy your position. But please know, I am here to assist in any way I can. Not just mining operations.” She grinned and winked. “Klingons aren’t the only ones who can be intimidating when need be. After all, I doubt many people get named ‘Fire Born’ by Klingons, either.”

She smiled and stood up to pace the room and finally paused at the window. “I think Urg and his ship being here would be a good idea for many reasons. Besides his interest in the mine, which I think runs deeper than the veins of ore in the caves.” She turned back to look at him. “While he’s not representing the Council, their allowance of this could be an advantage as well. And, as he said, having his ship in orbit doesn’t hurt, either.” Crossing her arms she frowned a moment. “I don’t know what he’s up to. Doubt we’d understand if we did. But I still think it’s a good idea.”
