To the Farthest Reaches
Location: Captain's Ready Room
Timeline: MD 0 10:00
Jim had arrived aboard the Eclipse only an hour ago, but he'd been greeted by several of the crewman on his way to his quarters. His last posting was a bit more lax in their initial meetings and introductions, but Jim was happy to see the Eclipse left nothing to be waited on. He was scheduled to meet with his new CO, Admiral Barks, at 10:00, which meant he had only a half hour to get himself situated.
His quarters were single occupancy, to his surprise. Though much more spacious than crew quarters, the Galaxy class offered a small bedroom, with a living space. It was more than he was accustomed to, coming from a Nova Class ship. He was eager to get himself settled, but now was not the time. Jim gathered himself and prepared for the trek up to deck one, where the next step of his career was about to start.
Having made his way to the captain's ready room, Jim took a deep breath, and then signaled his presence.
Admiral Barks had alot of PADD's out and going over everything as he was preparing for his departure from the Eclipse for shoreleave. He heard his ready room chime go off and said, "Enter."
The door swished open in front of Jim and he entered. He walked up to the... Admiral... as he saw it and handed the CO his transfer orders. "Ensign James Shannon, reporting as ordered,
Admiral Barks said, "Welcome aboard, Ensign. I see you are going to manage the auxiliary shuttles of the ship. I would prefer to have you as a shuttle manager, what do you think of that?"
"Oh, wow..." Jim said at first. He'd more or less been in charge of the Rector's small shuttle bay anyway, it was just never official. "I will do my best, sir."
Admiral Barks said, "Dismissed, Ensign."
