Scott was sat at his desk in his quarters, sipping on a mug of coffee, going over his morning reports. He still had a few hours before he was on duty, and he was relaxing in his pyjamas. This was a more relaxing morning than most, but he still felt it necessary to go over the happenings on his ship. As he pressed a few buttons to apply his signature to the work orders for the day, he was very aware of the noise. His room was very quiet, and he did not wish to wake Riley, who was asleep in the adjacent bedroom. She always liked to lie in longer than Scott did.
As he took another sip, he felt the warm liquid make its way down his throat. The caffeine hit having its desired effect. He looked at his desk, still a few more pads to go, most likely requests from the astronomy department to gain more time on the main sensor array, as the Discovery was busy exploring a Binary Star system.
