New Arrival

Posted on Tue Dec 6th, 2011 @ 6:03am by Lieutenant Commander Howard Murdock & Captain Azanialix Ja'arda

Mission: The Hunters
Location: Bridge
Timeline: Present

Murdock sat quietly on the bridge, monitoring the course and speed for the Zealous . . . a little too quietly.

"Something on your mind, Mr. Murdock?" the Captain wondered.

He stiffled a sigh, realizing that he couldn't keep anything from the Betazoid commanding officer for the ship. Although he had read about Betazoids, among other species, upon his arrival to the Zealous some time ago, it still never ceased to amaze him with the abilities that some species were able to display.

"Yes, sir. We're five minutes away from our destination, but we have a new member of my staff that I haven't had a chance to meet yet," he noted with a twinge of his Texan drawl showing up in his sentence.

In a way, Azanialix Ja'arda couldn't help but to smile. She had yet to meet the new helm officer herself, but it was a sign of a true senior officer to want to take the time and meet a member of their own staff.

"I admire your attention to duty, but you're free to leave the bridge and meet our new helm officer. In fact, after you've spent a bit of time getting to know him, I'd suggest bringing him up here for a tour of the bridge," she suggested.

"What about the testing in the Argolis Cluster?" he wondered.

Zania immediately held up a hand, "Don't worry about that. There are other staff members that can fill in until you return to the bridge. Go ahead and get to know your new helm officer. We have things covered until you return."

"Thank you, Captain," Murdock said before standing up from his console and leaving the bridge.
