Early meeting

Posted on Tue Sep 3rd, 2019 @ 1:35am by Lieutenant Skylar (Sky) Jansen

Mission: Wounded Pride
Location: XO's office
Timeline: Before arriving at the unknown signal.

Skylar made her way to Commander Sumner's office, she wanted to meet the ship's XO and so far she hadn't had chance. Pressing the door chime she waited patiently for an answer.

Andrea looked up from the PADD she was reading and stated her customary 'Enter'. As the doors opened she saw an officer walk in wearing the teal of the sciences. "Yes how can I help you?" She asked.

Walking inside the office Sky smiled politely as she approached Sumner's desk. "Commander I'm Skylar Jansen ships Counsellor." She handed over a PADD that contained the latest readiness report from the Counselling department. "My report for the Counselling department, in my professional opinion we could use an extra pair of hands but as things currently stand I can manage for now."

"Every department is a little short handed at the moment, nature of the situation, but I promise you I will look at getting some more people as soon as possible." Andrea said flatly. She smiled at the other officer. "Please have a seat," She motioned to an empty chair. "What can I do for you?"

"Actually, I'm somewhat behind in meeting people so I thought I'd drop by and introduce myself. I'll obviously be conducting psychological evaluations once I've had chance to catch up as well." Sky smiled warmly.

"Sounds good." Andrea smiled as she placed the PADD down on the desk. "How are you finding your time on board?'

"Actually I'm enjoying being back aboard a starship, I like being amongst a number of minds. Not that I'm gravitating towards a hermit lifestyle!" She grinned.

"Starship life has always been for me, something about being away from the folks at Command for me." Andrea commented. "Any questions or concerns thus far on your posting?"

"Not really. I've been busy catching up on personnel files but I'm not quite finished as yet, I'll let you know if I have any specific queries or questions."

'I will be around, most likely here." Andrea smiled. "Haven't even had time to visit the holodeck since I came on board." She comment. "Oh I forget, did I offer you some coffee?" Se motioned to the replicator.

"Oh, no but I'm fine thank you." Sky smiled warmly. "Might I suggest that you find some time for yourself as well. You need a rest as much as, if not more than everyone else."

"What's the saying, rest when you a dead." Andrea commented. "Always been my philosophy, the first few months of a new posting is always chaos, then things settle into a routine." She added with a smile. "Though I do appreciate your comments." She added.

Sky nodded. "I know what you mean, it takes me a while to settle in everywhere!" She grinned. "I am looking forward to getting stuck into my duties though. I won't pester you with regards your evaluation but if you don't come and see me in due course then I will come and find you." She smiled.

"Sounds good, My door is always open." Andrea stated as watched the other woman leave the room. She sighed as she looked down at the never ending pile of paper work and PADDs sitting on her desk. She closed her eyes and rubbed her eyes for a moment before reaching down, grabbing a PADD off the top of the pile and starting to get back to work reading status and inventory reports from every department on the ship.
