Mission: Churchill's First adventure
Location: Churchill
Timeline: MD003- 12:00 hrs 19/04/2392


Tank boarded the Churchill, it was larger than the one he had just left, it was newer also. He was led by an Ensign to his quarters to drop off his belongings before heading to meet the rest of the command staff. He pulled his PADD out of with his new orders and headed to the Captain's Quarters to officially report for duty.

While in the turbo lift, he was hoping afterwards to get a chance to get his new bars added to his uniform, it would be slightly embarrassing if he was confused for a new Ensign and not the new Chief of Security, but it was a risk he would have to take.

Tank stepped off of the turbolift and walked down the passageway to the ready room just as a Lieutenant stepped out nearly tripping them both.

Ellie was just exiting James Office when she almost fell over the new arrival in her hurry to get back to her office. The whole ‘get to know her Romulan father’ part was disturbing her, to say the least. “I’m....sorry” she offered the new Officer a brief smile.

"I'm sorry to Ma'am," Tank said quickly with a nod as he stepped up to the Captain's Door.

After Ellie had exited his Office, James had noticed as the doors had closed that another officer was waiting outside his office, he had heard from his chief security officer that he had to return home due to a death in the family and he had granted the leave, He had been informed that his replacement was on the Starbase and had been flown out to them. Now all he had to do was meet him.

Tank stood at the Captain's Door and pressed the intercom, "Captain this is Ensi... I mean Lieutenant Tankson reporting for duty sir." He shook his head at the slip-up, his mind was racing and he fell back on the old habit of his rank. He took a deep breath as he waited for the Captain to acknowledge him.

- Captain's ready room -

"Welcome Lieutenant and congratulations on your Promotion to your new rank," replied James as he looked back at the officer in front of him, He finished "and thank you for coming at short notice," as he walked over to Tank and held his hand out.

"Thank you, sir, I'm glad to be here. This opportunity was completely unexpected. I mean no disrespect to the previous CoS, I do hope whatever pulled him away suddenly is able to be resolved quickly."

James looked back at him for a minute and said," Let me give you some free advice Lieutenant," replied James as he remembered his own father giving him the wisdom, he continued, "Never look a gift horse in the mouth," as he hoped that Tank understood what he meant.

"Aye Captain, duly noted," Tank replied. "Sir, is there anything ongoing I need to be aware of?"

Looking at the new Chief of Security "yes, it seems Lieutenant Kees' father has shown up and is wanting to see her, there are countless scenarios where that is not good, but as Starfleet officers we have to be diplomatic, so I want you to find out everything you can about the Lieutenant's father and the ship he will be arriving on" James said.

"Aye Captain," Tank responded. He did not know Lieutenant Kees but he would be setting up a meeting afterwards with her to gather information. "Will, that be all Sir?" Tank asked respectfully.

- Bridge -

Katana saw the young Lieutenant as he crossed the bridge. oOInterestingOo Looking after him, "Lt. Kees who is the new guy? Kinda handsome heh?", she said.

"To be honest...I hadn't really noticed." Ellie looked at Katana before heading for the turbolift. Right now she just needed some time alone to think.

Listening to the women size up the new arrival, she hid a smile "okay you pair go easy on the new members will you" Lightfeather said with humour in her voice from her XO seat on the bridge

Tank exited the Ready Room and stepped onto the bridge, he was immediately impressed with the size of it, it was larger than the bridge on the Kirk, and looked a bit newer. Taking it all in he noticed a female in the chair at the centre of the bridge; stepping forward he introduced himself, "Ma'am, I am Lieutenant Tankson, the new Chief of Security."

Looking from Kees to the new arrival "welcome aboard the Churchill Lieutenant Tankson, I am Lieutenant Commander Andromeda Lightfeather ships First Officer. The Captain is currently going to be detained with other duties, you will get a chance to meet him at some point. But do you have the Padd with your transfer orders on?" Lightfeather asked holding her hand out for the Padd.

"Thank you, Commander here is the Padd, the orders were authorized about an hour ago," Tank said as he handed Lightfeather the Padd. "I also just left the Captain's Ready Room, I was able to catch him before his meeting."

Looking up at the Lieutenant "you are lucky" she said looking at the Padd "take your station Lieutenant" she said "welcome aboard" she finally said looking up at him with a smile.

Tank nodded and took his position at the Security station behind the Captain's chair. He reviewed the different displays and began familiarizing himself with the ship's weapons specs.

"Okay go to active scanning, the hairs on the back of my neck are standing up, there is another ship out there, let's get to work finding it and dealing with what happens next," Lightfeather said.

All simply nodded and got to work finding the cloaked Romulan ship that was out there sulking somewhere, Andi was not liking this one bit, not one bit.
