Nicholas had been called away some months ago and upon returning learned there was a new Governor in town. He supposed it was time to meet this… person.

He came to the Governor’s office and was greeted by an assistant. “Can I help you?”
“Commander Nicholas James to see the Governor.”
“Do you have an appointment?”
“Just tell him I’m here.”
“Sir-“
“Just- tell him.”
“Fine.” A message was sent to the governor. “I suppose you can wait here until the Governor agrees to see you.”

-Nicholas James, CIO

A few minutes passed, and then there was a soft chime and the doors to the Governor’s office swung in. The room was very large, with a white tile floor, and consisted of two walls of floor to ceiling windows lining the left side and the wall facing the doors. The right wall was a white masonry of some kind for half of the length of the room; and the masonry section was set in from the windows of the far right corner, with a large fireplace in front of a seating area. The room was barren and obviously in a state of extreme transition. The only part of the room not in flux was the desk in the corner of the room made of the two walls of windows. The desk sat on a raised section of the room, and there were three chairs in front of it. Seated at the desk was the Governor, a striking Asian man with full jet black eyes dressed in a tastefully tailored gray suit.

As James entered, the Governor stood up. “Commander. Please, do have a seat. I must say I was not expecting a visit from Star Fleet Intelligence. To what do I owe the pleasure, Commander?” and the Governor sat as his ‘guest’ did.

Hyrushi, Governor

Nicholas sat. He was quiet for a moment as he analyzed. “Call it curiosity.” He smiled faintly. “It’s my business to know those in power around here.” His face turned serious I left and one Governor vanished, replaced by you. Interesting seeing as most politician’s records are at least outwardly spotless.”

-Lt Cmdr Nicholas James, CIO

Hyrushi shrugged nonchalantly. “My predecessor left of his own volition. The ‘why’ I do not know. So I don’t see myself as replacing anyone. I was simply the next on the list, I suppose. And as far as records go? I am afraid I am not quite understanding. Is there a problem with my security clearance?” Hyrushia asked, legitimate concern in his voice as the obsidian eyes locked onto the man in front of him. He let himself be open to the Commander, and he could feel the man’s confidence and a bit of arrogance… but then the rage hit him and his eyebrows raised in surprise. Leaning back, he said “Commander… have I done something to personally offend you? Or are you mad at the fact that I was not expected by you?” and he pressed a button on his desk.

Hyrushi, Governor

“Don’t try to anticipate me Governor. Better men than you have tried and failed.” Nicholas paused. “There’s no problem with your clearance. That itself is the issue. It strikes me as odd that someone with such a troubled past has a top government position now.” His eyes narrowed. “Of course… if you or perhaps your mother can pull enough strings, you can get anything you want, right?”
