Location: Ready Room
Timeline: MD 3: In Route
Admiral Barks was in the ready room and the Eclipse was in route to the planet and he wanted to get as many officers as possible trained for command. His counselor was a Lieutenant Commander so he decided she could be trained for bridge duty and if she was she would be eligable for a promotion to Commander.
"Lieutenant Commander Nokitsune, please report to the ready room!"
Akane quickly made her way to the room, worried about the severity of the call - not realising yet what it was really about.
She arrived, saluted sharply and said. "Admiral...Lieutenant Commander Kitsune Akane reporting for duty."
"Come in, Commander, have you any bridge experience commanding the bridge."
She shook her head no. "Um...not at all sir...I've been mainly handling the duties of the counselor. Why do you ask, Sir?"
"You have sufficant rank to be a bridge officer and I want to get you trained for that. How do you feel about that, Commander?"
"I'd be honoured..." She said softly. "How do I start?"
"Computer, download all command reference materials into this PADD." He turned to the counselor and said, "Study this material and let me know when are you are done with it."
She smiled broadly. "It will be my honour sir. I shall get myself a BIG cup of tea and make sure I go through it thoroughly." She saluted. "Thank you so much for your confidence, Sir."
"You are welcome, Commander. I will talk to you later." Chris said
Akane nodded and walked off to her room, turned on some music and began the reading....letting the information drift into her mind slowly but organisedly.
