Captain Ja'arda almost felt her heart leap when she heard that they were finally clear from the space dock. This was the moment that she and everyone else had been waiting for for some time now, since the loss of the last ship.

She smiled and pressed a button on the arm of her chair to open a ship-wide communications channel. "Attention all hands, we have cleared space dock. We are about to put this new USS Zealous through her paces, and see what she can do," she announced.

She paused for a moment, and then continued, "Although some of you are new to the Zealous, many of you have been part of our family for a long time. And that is, indeed, what we are . . . a family. The Zealous wouldn't be what it is, or operate as efficiently, if it isn't for each one of you putting your heart into it as you do."

She could see the stars in the viewscreen, slowly streaking past as they started to pass by the moon and eventually approach the red planet known as Mars. It was really a breath-taking sight, which caused the Betazoid to smile again. "All hands . . . battle stations!"

"Mr. Murdock, full impulse. Take us to warp once we're clear of the system," she ordered.

"Aye, sir," she heard him respond with a bit of a Texan drawl.

She then turned to Commander Taylor Mason and grinned, "Got any preferences for a test for this new ship, Commander?"
