==This thread is for Pond and Toreen's Command Certification. Invited players only, please.==

 

Administering a Command Certification. Jason had gotten pretty used to doing so since his time as Tyra's First Officer. Though, today would be a first for him.

 

I've never administered a test for two Officers at the same time. And with actual crew with them instead of just all holograms. But, he had taken the time, gotten everything loaded and submitted, and was now just waiting for everyone to arrive. He stepped into the empty Holodeck. Took a look around at the blank walls.

 

Security and Medical. I picked just the right program for them. He smiled before speaking. "Computer, load program Pond/Toreen Command-1." The familiar chime of confirmation sounded as the area around him changed. Instead of a blank room, he now stood on the Bridge of a Starship.

 

Basic schematics would show that the Bridge belonged to a Zeus-class Light Cruiser. The seats were all currently empty. While he waited, he decided to take a seat in the COs chair. He looked around. It reminded him of the Pegasus, the last ship he served on in the capacity of a Tactical Officer, the Chief Tactical Officer. Before he got the call from Tyra and changed the color of his uniform to a darker shade of red.

 

Now, he would be helping two of his Department Heads the chance to make the next step up. And the next step closer to wearing that same color. Here we go.

Vari had straightened up her uniform quite a few times before she felt ready to leave her quarters. This was a big deal. A test that would confirm or deny her ability to lead a whole ship of people.

 

She and Pond had, eventually, decided to do their test together. The two of them were, after all, good friends, and had progressed through the ranks at roughly the same time. Regardless of that, the Chief Medical Officer had contracted a serious case of The Nerves.

 

A short burst of almost hysterical laughter left her at the medical-related thought, drawing looks from a couple of officers that walked by. She quickly turned it into a smile and nodded, only closing her eyes with a despairing expression after she was past them. Still the smirk remained.

 

Until she got to the holodeck, of course, and the nerves returned tenfold. Taking a final breath, she stepped inside and onto the bridge of their holographic ship. It seemed smaller than the Ozaki, and she took a second to get her bearings. Looking over for any weak spots, anything that she’d have to watch for. She was no tactician, but she knew how to assess a space (though part of the learning curve was, though she’d never admit it, due to running away from her bigoted peers back in the schoolyard).

 

After satisfying herself, Vari tucked a lock of hair behind her ear, resisting the urge to gnaw on the edge of her thumb. Or hyperventilate.

 

You’re in front of the Captain. Get it together, Toreen.

 

Summoning up a smile, she cleared her throat and looked at him.

 

I hope I’ve not been standing here looking like a daydreaming moron.

 

“Hey,” she said, before flinching slightly at that pathetic greeting. “Uh, sir. Sorry, I’m a bit nervous. This is… new to me.”

 

Folding her hands behind her back, she glanced around again. Her accent had come through a little more strongly than usual- while she’d worked hard to neutralize it over the years in space- mostly so that everyone could understand her- occasionally the sing-song tone of the Scottish Isles still pushed to the forefront. It couldn’t hurt to admit she was nervous, though- she was certain he’d understand that. Nerves were a necessary part of the job. It was how she controlled them that would judge her ability as a leader.

 

Wetting her lips, she smiled, “Never been on a ship other than the Ozaki, either. So this is all new.”

Of all people, why him?

 

Onyx was not sure why he got the message telling him to report to the Holodeck for a test. He wasn't being tested, so there was very little pressure on him. Sighing a little, he walked into the holodeck and he was immediately given the bridge layout of a Zeus-Class light cruiser. Every class of ship was different in terms of layouts, and as an Engineering cadet he was required to learn pretty much every single one. The Engineering console was behind the CO's left shoulder, facing away from the main view screen. He did not know what the exam entailed, he did not know how it would be graded. He also did not know if the safety protocols were engaged or not. In fact, it very much reminded him of the Academy final exam he took.

 

Upon entering, he saw the Captain seated on the Captain's chair and the Chief Medical Officer reporting to him. He did not really talk to the CMO much, maybe a few words in passing. The whole mission however he avoided her, and at no offence to her he wanted to keep it that way. Of course it would be inevitable for Onyx to get wounded and he might be under her care. At the present moment, he did not want to be anything more than what he was being asked to do.

 

Standing around the Captain and the CMO, Onyx stood easy as he reported in.

 

"Midshipman Krylixson, reporting as ordered."

Getting the message to report to the Holo Deck, Beno had a feeling she knew why. It was going to be a thrill to go through the process again, but this time the pressure was going to be on someone else. Her uniform was definitely crisp and clean, ready for anything that can come their way. After all she had already been through it once, she was aware anything can happen. These things were designed to tax the ability of everyone involved.

When she got inside the Holo deck, she seen the other four officers and smiled really big. With this amount of officers it was going to be something incredibly special, and it was definitely a privilege just to be a part of it. The bridge of this ship was not one she was familiar with, but in her career she hadn’t been on that many at all. “Hello everyone really happy to help in any way I can.” She went into this not knowing anything about what was going to happen, there were two senior officers doing their test at the same time. With hers she had to think a lot on her feet, and with this it wasn’t going to be much different at all. All she knew was she was there to help them getting a passing grade.

Going to her station and activating it, she wanted to know what she had to work with. It was going to take a minute to get an inventory of what she had to work with. This was a new ship to her, and had no idea about what it holds. Finally when that got started, she turned to face the crew, she had a large amount of hope for everyone. “Are you going to be joining us Captain?” If not it was going to be either Pond or Toreen in command, it was their test and always fun to be part of it.

It been a long time since Keval done his command training.

 

This was slightly different as it was Pond and Toreen at the same time. Which would make it all the more interesting.

 

Arriving outside the Holodeck, Keval straightened his uniform before stepping up to the door. The door slid back to reveal the Captain along with Toreen, Velaul and Krylixson already on a Bridge.

 

Stepping through the door he said “Captain, Doc, Commander Midshipman.” As he walked across the Bridge he paused for a moment.

 

“Isn’t this like the Pegasus Bridge. I served on her between my time on the Dauntless and Titan.” He commented looking towards the Captain before adding "Lieutenant Commander Keval ch'Alev reporting for duty." 

 

There was a pause before he said, 

 

“Where would you like me, Sir?” as he knew he was only assisting in this command assessment and not one of the two that were under pressure.

Luna had been up since first thing in the morning, today she would be taking her Command Test and her stomach fluttered wildly with butterflies. In the last few days she had been trying to do some revision of various ship specifications and layouts, plus any other reading material that could be of use. Her quarters were littered with various PADDs, she kept meaning to pick them up and tidy away at the end of every revision session. However for the last 48 hours, she had gone to best exhausted and so another tidying opportunity had been missed.
 
Damn my nerves Luna thought to herself as she replicated herself a cup of coffee, as she sipped the hot liquid the tight knot of anxiety in her stomach seemed to slightly ease. Walking over to the closet she put on a clean crisp uniform replicated the night before and wrestled her hair into a high french braid, at least she wasn't doing this test alone and her best friend would be right there as well the whole time.
 
At least that is something to be grateful for. As she strode out the door and along the corridors to the Holodeck. Taking a couple of steadying breaths, she headed inside to see what awaited her.
 
Luna was pleasantly surprised to come face to face with not only Vari but Onyx, Beno and Keval as well. Although she was nervous she managed a smile and a nod to everyone present. Luna then focused on her overall surroundings, she observed that at present she was on the Bridge of a Zeus Class Light Cruiser.
 
"An interesting choice of vessel" she remarked quietly to herself.
 
From her revision, this was quite a versatile specification of a Starship. It filled her with a sense of excitement to be given the chance to command one, even if it was only in simulation. This kind of ship had excellent maneuverability she had researched and fire power that would put some vessels to shame. She only hoped that the simulation would have a bit of everything and the chance to experiment with all the ship had to offer and that she would not be left disappointed.
 
Luna then spotted the Captain and made her way over to report in, bringing herself up to attention she announced politely.
 
"Lieutenant Pond reporting for duty Sir"

Peter entered the holodeck, not quite knowing what to expect. He knew that he'd be taking part in Lt. Pond's command exam, but it had taken him a while to wrap his mind around two facts: Not only that the exam would be with real officers instead of holograms - which, while certainly more realistic as it would be real people and not holograms - would also put constraints on the possible scenario involved.
He'd heard overheard stories in the cafeteria at the Academy from instructors who talked about their own command exams, where they'd been forced to order very realistic holographic versions of their close friends to their deaths to save the ship.

For obvious reasons, this could not happen here. So Peter wondered what was in store for them. And he hoped the safeties were on.

The second thing that confused him, was the fact that unlike other command exams, this would be shared between both Pond AND Toreen. Peter was more than a little sceptical of that decision, but his was neither to make reply, nor to question why. He did worry, though, that the shared focus would mean uncertainty as to who was actually calling the shots, and whose lead he would be following. That annoyed him to no end, as he took a deep breath and took a few steps further into the holodeck before clicking his heels.

"Lt. Jg. Jensen reporting as ordered", he announced, maintaining the formality he felt was appropriate for the occasion.

The first person to arrive was the Chief Medical Officer. Jason didn't need to be an empath to realize this was nervous. Her greeting to him only confirmed as much. He smiled reassuringly to her.

 

“Never been on a ship other than the Ozaki, either. So this is all new.” Jason nodded. He had been on this type of ship. And a Destroyer, a Heavy Cruiser, and now the Ozaki, a Frigate. He found himself amazed at it, each time offering a new adventure, and helping him to grow.

 

"Yes. A Light Cruiser is definitely bigger than a Frigate, but small enough to still be agile." He smiled. "Though, the Ozaki is still a good little ship."

 

Further conversation was put on hold as more of the participants trickled in, starting with Krylixson. Though the tall Mirak seemed distant to most, Jason saw him as very capable and a huge asset to the crew, even if the Engineer didn't see it himself. Jason greeted each in turn.

 

“Isn’t this like the Pegasus Bridge. I served on her between my time on the Dauntless and Titan.” ch'Alev was saying. “Where would you like me, Sir?”

 

"I served on her as my last assignment as Chief Tactical Officer before becoming a First Officer," Jason replied. "As far as your station, I'll get to that when everyone arrives."

 

Pond and Jensen were the last to arrive. Not too surprisingly, considering the amount of work the two had been doing in the Security Department. Once everyone had settled down, Jason cleared his throat.

 

"First, I want to thank everyone for coming in support of your fellow Officers," he began. "A Command Cert is a momentous occasion, and great undertaking for those who wish to continue to advance through not only the ranks, but as being able and trusted to take Command should the situation call for it. And it shows Command, and other Commanding Officers your capability if and when the time comes that someone is looking for a First Officer, and, eventually, a Commanding Officer." He gave a pause before continuing.

 

"Some of you are familiar with the Command Course," he looked over to Velaul and ch'Alev. "Your experience will be critical in assisting the candidates....though don't do the test for them." He smiled slyly at the comment.

 

"Now. For assignments." He pulled up the information on his PADD, going down the list in the order he had set it up. "Commander ch'Alev, you will be filling the position as Chief Tactical Officer. Commander Velaul, you'll be Chief Science Officer, so no change for you." He smiled a bit. "Lieutenant Jensen. As Lieutenant Pond will be filling one of the Command slots, you'll be assigned as Chief of Security. And Mr. Krylixson. You will be filling the role of Acting Chief Engineer. Now, as we don't have anyone from the Medical Department present, that position will be filled by a Hologram Officer, one Lieutenant Brent Lansing. I will not be joining you on this little endeavor."

 

He then looked to Pond and Toreen.

 

"Now, here comes the kicker. Before I produce your respective uniforms for this exercise, I need to know, per any discussion you two have had in preparation for the test, who will be taking the role of Commanding Officer, and who will be taking the role as First Officer."

When the Captain welcomed them all, Peter stood up a bit straighter, more as a matter of reflex than anything else. And when he was chosen as COS for the purpose of this exercise, he nodded briefly. All focus would be on the two applicants, of course, as it should be, but he also knew that he had to do well himself if he was to have a shot at command himself one day.

It was as Simmons pointed out the obvious flaw in the construction of this training scenario that Peter had to force himself to refrain from rolling his eyes. He'd seen this coming too. Naturally one of the two would have to be XO, meaning that only one of them would actually have their command skills tested. The other would be a higher-tier version of the rest of them: Stringing along, following that person's lead.

BUt, as stated before, it was neither Peter's to make reply, or reason why. So he merely stood there, awaiting the decision, so the exam could progress.

Admittedly, Vari bristled a little when the Captain mentioned the hologram that would be standing in for Medical. She was used to being very, very active in her job, and so the thought of allowing someone else to do it was oddly discomforting. But it was also, in an odd sort of way, a good thing. Putting her out of her usual role, getting her to try something new… her mum would be so proud.

 

When the Captain asked who would be filling what role, Vari smiled graciously.

 

“I’ll be taking on the role of First Officer while Luna will be Commanding Officer, sir,” she said. She paused for a moment at the realization she’d actually called her friend by her first name- odd. Normally she used some form of Pond, even when it was just the two of them, so the nerves were clearly getting to her a little more than she’d anticipated.

 

She pushed some hair behind her ear, ready to go- to a point. Her heart was still pounding and she was fairly sure her cheeks were probably flushed, making her a little more green than usual, but other than that she was- mostly- able to keep herself looking the picture of composure.

 

“And, uh, guys… thanks,” she said, finally, to the rest of the room. None of them had to help them, and she could only hope that one day she’d be able to return the favour.

 

As stoic and businesslike as she appeared while working- something only Luna and Sebok really saw, along with ch’Alev whenever he was with her best friend- she really did have a soft spot in her heart for everyone else there.

Onyx listened to the Captain and he realized that he was the lowest ranked person there. There was a problem he thought that having such a low ranking and experienced officer taking part in a crucial examination for not one but two officers wanting to be Command certified. Glancing at the other officers who would be tested, he had never really spoken to the Chief Medical Officer. The Chief of Security, so far, has been the most direct DH he had interacted with other than his own. Lieutenant Pond, who so far the the only officer whose name he remembered, seemed like the kind of person who could take command. The CMO however, to him, did not prove anything to him to settle an opinion for.

 

"And Mr. Krylixson. You will be filling the role of Acting Chief Engineer."

 

Nodding, Onyx glanced over at the station, just as it was revealed that the CMO would take the role of FO while Pond took CO. After a word of thanks from the CMO, Onyx nodded back, waiting for last minute instructions before manning his station.

Luna listened in with interest, as the Captain gave his opening addresses to the officers assembled.
 
"First, I want to thank everyone for coming in support of your fellow Officers," he began. "A Command Cert is a momentous occasion, and great undertaking for those who wish to continue to advance through not only the ranks, but as being able and trusted to take Command should the situation call for it. And it shows Command, and other Commanding Officers your capability if and when the time comes that someone is looking for a First Officer, and, eventually, a Commanding Officer."
 
She could feel a knot form in her stomach, she was anxious and every part of her body was trying it's best to hold itself together.
 
I've gone through so much with this crew already, I just hope I am now equal to this next challenge so that I can progress in my career.
 
Glancing around the Bridge, Luna was humbled by the amount of support Vari and herself had simply by the assortment of officers assembled. She listened as the Captain highlighted the fact that some of them had previously passed Command Training, before reminding them not to do the test on the candidates behalf. She couldn't help by swear that a smile had just escaped the Captain and Luna raised her eyebrows in Vari's direction making sure this was out of the direct vision of the Simmons.
Jason had now focused in on herself and Toreen.
 
"Now, here comes the kicker. Before I produce your respective uniforms for this exercise, I need to know, per any discussion you two have had in preparation for the test, who will be taking the role of Commanding Officer, and who will be taking the role as First Officer."
 
Luna pressed her lips together and took a look at Vari who then spoke.
 
“I’ll be taking on the role of First Officer while Luna will be Commanding Officer, sir,”
 
At this statement, Luna pulled herself up straighter. She was about to talk Command of this scenario and now was no longer the time for nerves. She thought about the Ozaki's motto as she got around to addressing the Bridge, it had stuck with her since she had first arrived on board under the Command of Captain Tam and now seemed a good time to use it. Even if it was just for her own benefit.
 
"Thank you everyone for being here today, remember if we all work together anything is possible until victory always"
 
Luna then shot a reassuring glance at Jensen followed by a smile, she was glad he was here to take the Chief of Security role. Even if it was just for the upcoming scenario, it was a role that when the time came for her to move on she couldn't think of a more worthy successor then Peter.
 
It was on this note with bated breath, that Luna waited for the exam to begin.

Knowing that she has done her test, and now helping with another. She had to go the fine line between helping with the test, and doing it for them. There was one other person who went through the process, and he was going to have to know the difference as well. There was the original confusion about who was going to be in command, it was fortunate that the two women were in agreement on who was going to take command. Lieutenant Pond for this was going to be Captain, and that would mean that Lieutenant Toreen was now going to be Commander Toreen.

 

Waiting for them both to change into their alternate command red. It was when all of that was established, Beno crossed the bridge and went to the new Captain. "Captain Pond...... Lieutenant Commander Beno Velaul reporting in as Chief Science officer." Even though Captain Simmons was there, he would be the one running the test. She felt the person she should report too, would be the one who she should report too. Now that the whole team was there, what ever was going to come their way was going to make her test seem simple. However this was the crew of the Ozaki, no one was going to let their own down. The new Chief of Engineering, and Security, both of them were going to get a chance to see things from a whole new angle. It will also give them a chance to do a self evaluation, and see where their strengths are and areas they need to improve.

"I served on her as my last assignment as Chief Tactical Officer before becoming a First Officer," The Captain replied. "As far as your station, I'll get to that when everyone arrives."
 
“Understood.” Responded Keval as then the final two arrived being Pond and Jensen. 
 
"First, I want to thank everyone for coming in support of your fellow Officers," Captain Simmons began. "A Command Cert is a momentous occasion, and great undertaking for those who wish to continue to advance through not only the ranks, but as being able and trusted to take Command should the situation call for it. And it shows Command, and other Commanding Officers your capability if and when the time comes that someone is looking for a First Officer, and, eventually, a Commanding Officer." He gave a pause before continuing.
 
It did seem there was a lot of tension in the air he could feel it through the antenna. 
 
"Some of you are familiar with the Command Course," he looked over to Velaul and ch'Alev. "Your experience will be critical in assisting the candidates....though don't do the test for them." The Captain smiled slyly at the comment.
 
Keval gave a glanced towards Beno with a small trace of a smile across his lips before the Captain said, 
 
"Now. For assignments." He pulled up the information on his PADD, going down the list in the order he had set it up. "Commander ch'Alev, you will be filling the position as Chief Tactical Officer. Commander Velaul, you'll be Chief Science Officer, so no change for you." He smiled a bit. "Lieutenant Jensen.

I will not be joining you on this little endeavor."
 
Keval gave a nod to the Captain in his response to the position before the Captain asked the two officers who were undergoing the test who would be FO and CO. 
 
The Doc decided on being FO which meant Pond would be CO for this little test. Pond then gave a speech which indicated the Ozaki dedication plaque. 
 
“Captain Pond and Commander Toreen. Sounds like some kind of Earth fairy tale.” He commented towards Oynx before adding. 
 
“No pressure on you Acting Chief Engineer.” In a low voice. 
 
Keval took a couple of steps towards the new command team. 
 
“Captain Pond, would you like me on the tactical station or on the helm?” he asked her.

As the simulation was about to start, Peter nodded, bracing himself for he knew not what, but it was sure to be interesting. He decided then and there to play this as close to real as possible. He, too nodded briefly to Capt. Simmons, before turning his attention towards Pond.
He forced himself to shove any other thoughts out of his mind for the moment. In the here and now, the point was to perform as close to a real situation as possible.

Which also meant that he wasn't going to pull any punches. Peter had to put himself in the position of actually being COS, with the responsibility and duty associated with this. His instinct had so far been to simply click his heels and say amen to everything. He knew that in this exercise, he couldn't. Because if it was real, he couldn't Obey, certainly, but also present options and voice concerns.
Peter took a few steps forward towards Pond, and cleared his throat:

"Leftenant Jensen reporting for duty, Captain. What are my orders?", he asked solemnly.

Sitting in the Commander's chair, Vari tried to familiarize herself with it all. She was certain her face gave away her thoughts- namely, what the hell am I doing here? It felt bizarre, being in charge of people on a basis like this, but she held herself straight as people asked questions of Pond.

 

Commander Vari Toreen. She tested it out in her mind and found she was not entirely opposed to the sound of it. She crossed her legs in front of her and glanced at the controls around her, tried to further familiarize herself with the Bridge before they had to start going through whatever scenario the Captain had prepared for them. As soon as the questions were finished flowing and everyone was assigned to their posts, she glanced over at her best friend, waggling her eyebrows.

 

"This is what we've been gearing up for, eh, Pondy?" she looked forwards. "Let's get this show on the road."

 

And it'd be fine, really. Provided they didn't come across any Romulans or... well, full-blooded Orions, because that'd spiral her into a panic.

After she had changed into the Command uniform, Luna made her way out across the Bridge. The change of colour felt odd and Luna's head was screaming at her.
 
What the h*** are you doing her, parading around in a colour you have no right to wear
 
Trying her best to shake the initial doubt "Well everyone has to start somewhere" she uttered under her breath, as she came to a stand still in front of the Captain's chair. It was at this point, that Valeul, ch'Alev and Jensen reported in to her.
 
"Captain Pond...... Lieutenant Commander Beno Velaul reporting in as Chief Science officer."
 
Luna gave a respectful nod "Thank you Commander glad to have you aboard, please go ahead and take your console."
 
A short time after this, ch'Alev followed suit.
 
“Captain Pond, would you like me on the tactical station or on the helm?” he asked her.
 
A hint of a smile, brushed over Luna's lips, there was only one place she could put such a skilled pilot like Keval.
 
"Commander ch'Alev please take up your station at the helm"
 
Finally Jensen came over to report in.
 
"Leftenant Jensen reporting for duty, Captain. What are my orders?", he asked solemnly.
 
Luna gave another respectful nod "Thank you Lieutenant, glad to have you aboard. As for your orders please take your station at the Security console.
 
Once everyone was stationed, Luna turned and took a seat in the Captain's chair. Running her fingers along the arms of the chair she drummed her fingers lightly and inspected her surroundings, she wasn't sure what to expect next as she crossed her legs at the ankle and waited for the simulation to start. Taking a few steady breaths, Luna glanced over in the direction of Vari.
 
"This is what we've been gearing up for, eh, Pondy?" Vari said waggling her eyebrows
 
"Sure is Commander" she replied, giving her a wink
 
"Ok everyone let's do this"

Peter smiled and nodded at Pond's instruction.

 

"As you command", he answered her and went over to the security console to take his station. He was unable to hide a slight frown at Pond and Toreen breaking immersion with that familiar tone, but he said nothing, and focused instead on familiarizing himself with the layout of the ship that had been chosen for the simulation, as well as the number and qualifications of the NPCs he'd have at his disposal for the duration of the test, to help Pond as best as he could.

Having her orders, she knew exactly what she had to do. Giving a quick smile, and a small. “Aye Captain.” Beno went back to her station, and waited for what was going to happen next. It seemed like everyone had their orders, but there was one thing left to do. That was to wait, wait and see.

Taking a good look around the bridge, she was happy to be part of it. With the ship that they had, who knew what kind of mission they were going to go on. Part of her did hope for a science mission, but odds were it wasn’t. The waiting was always the hard part, and this was no different.

"Commander ch'Alev please take up your station at the helm" said Pond to which ch’Alev replied 
 
“Aye Captain.” And headed to the helm position. 
 
Sliding into the seat it took him back to the time when he was on the USS Pegasus. It felt strange but at the same time fun to be able to go back to those feelings. It made him want to at some point visit the holodeck and maybe pull up the Titan Bridge. 
 
His thoughts were broken by Pond who said 
 
"Ok everyone let's do this"
 
“Aye Captain, helm is ready for your orders.” Reported back ch’Alev.

==Alright. Everything should be back to normal now==

 

Jason couldn't help but smile at how smoothly the two transitioned to their positions, and with Pond ensuring everyone was at their stations. With everything set, Jason pressed a button and holographic crew filled the other stations. The lights also dimmed, and the ship went into a frozen Red Alert.

 

"Alright, everyone," he said. "Welcome aboard the USS Oberon. Your current mission was to join two other ships, the USS Valiant and the USS Cromwell, as an escort for delegates from Vulcan and the Democratic Romulan Republic. En route to your final stop, you came under attack by some terrorists known to frequent this area, hence the need for a Heavy Cruiser, a Light Cruiser, and a Destroyer. I'll let the rest of the scenario play out itself. Computer, start program."

 

With his words, Jason disappeared from the simulation, and everything started up. An Enlisted at comms spoke up.

 

"Captain, the terrorists have managed to disable the Cromwell's engines," he was saying, his rank denoting a Chief Petty Officer. "She's still got weapons, so she's working them good. They're primarily targeting the Valiant now, though. It's strong, but definitely outnumbered. Gotta few messing with us."

 

His report definitely held a looming question in the air. Which ship to help out. However, another alert came out.

 

"We've got reports of enemy boarders on Deck 3."

 

==On to you guys==
