[Hallway enroute to Engineering]

Aretah's mass of wavy dark hair had been pinned back quite neatly long before she began the walk to Engineering. Her padd was in her hand as she read over the information she had downloaded this morning. As much as she disliked it, the young woman had always been an early riser. At least that meant she was rarely, if ever, late for a duty shift.

The soft sound the door to engineering made as it slid open almost made her smile as she passed through it.

[Engineering]

Just as she approached her station, the call came down from the Bridge to increase their speed. Aretah could not help rolling her eyes at the request. Everything they had? Easy, but not very efficient. =/\=Engineering to Flight control, please restate your request. For example, if the Captain would like Warp 9.8 we can manage ten hours at best. How in a hurry are we to reach Melian?=/\=

[Main Engineering]

Unlike the rest of the ship's complement, Engineering didn't have the luxury to sit around or dim the lights during gamma shift. It was the best time to catch up on routine maintenance, since it was almost guaranteed that nothing catastrophic would occur while the senior staff were all asleep. No one would ever admit, but it was widely believed that the Captain scheduled all the excitement during Alpha shift. Nobody liked being woken up by a red alert while falling out of bed onto their ass.

Clambering out of a jeffries tube, Alex wiped his hands off his trousers, rolling his shoulders expansively after being constricted in the narrow workways. He made it a habit of showing up at least an hour early, knowing it was important to work with his night team. Adjusting his workbelt and rolling down his sleeves to appear more 'professional', Alex took a quick sweep of main engineering, noting the changeovers. With the replicator in constant demand for coffee, he decided to get his own later after the line cleared.

Ahh, Bixox. A young officer who showed signs of promise, albeit with some attitude. Passing by on his way to the warp core, Alex patted her on the back and flashed a quick thumbs up. "You tell them, girl." He muttered softly, stopping at the 'tombstone'. From there, the entire ship's functions were accessible, everything from environmental settings to warp core pressure. "Good night Gamma shift, and good morning Alpha." Alex announced to the alternating stream of personnel crossing paths at the bay doors. "Team leaders on me, day's not getting any younger."

"Good morning, Kyle. I saw we had two fights last night on Gamma, but nothing else serious.  Anything you need to bring to my attention?"

Kyle turned as Doctor Sukal entered and spoke. "Morning, Doc. Not really anything to do with the brawlers. I just finished reading the report. They were so drunk, they barely even landed any punches on each other. One bumped his head as he tripped over his own feet and the other scrapped his knuckles on the bulk head when he missed a punch. They're all treated, bandaged and ready for lock up." Kyle replied as he extended a PADD to the Doctor. "And here are today's physicals."

[Lieutenant Commander Klabax Cottle, Chief of Ops, Third Officer] Damn that's a long title

[Holodeck]

Klabax was standing in his golden uniform outside the holodeck. The Denobulan sleep cycle needed such little sleep it was almost comical, so he was able to work around the clock sometimes. Currently, he had taken over the project of installing new hardware on the holodeck. He had the paperwork stacked in front of him, requisition forms, install orders, and instructions... and he loved it. The parts had been ordered from the Starbase, but just now they were able to be installed. With the engineers that had been subtly drafted... and by stubtly the Ops personell were obviously tampering with the duty rosters... were hard at work, as Klabax supervised. With nothing else going on, he took his PADD, grabbed his cup of coffee, and set to work on requisition forms for Medical. They wanted... some weirded out contraption. There likely was no need for it, but he would make them happy anyways.

He was called over by one of the Engineers, so he sauntered over and looked at the work. It looked solid enough and so Klabax turned on the holodeck, grinning like a child as it kicked on. He ran it through a battery of tests, noting any flaws and sending the Engineers back to work, much to the annoyance of said engineers.

[Deck 15 - Ops]

Unless her mind was playing tricks on her, Anderson had smiled demurely at her in science blues without so much as a hello passing through; she wasn't even going the right direction. Weirded out, Kali looked at her cup of coffee, sighed, and then tossed it straight into the nearest trash receptacle. Replicated coffee was now on her official list of things that messed with her delicate quarter-Vulcan mind.

What the hell was going on?

When she reached the Ops department, she found Lieutenant Sukal absent from supervising and a whole other shift of crewman she had never seen before ever in this particular deck. The only one she recognized was Crewman Carter - and he was commandeering her workspace like he owned it.

Two weeks ago he had been Nurse Carter - the sheepish medical assistant that dealt with her whining and burnt fingers during that console malfunction. Unless everyone got department changes and a promotion scramble, something was verywhatChief of Security?! sheKazThis‘Bridge!' at the ceiling lights until the doors closed between them. Carter and Rojas shared a look again and then reached for a console.

"Operations to Bridge," Rojas announced. "Lieutenant Commander Reyes is... well we don't know what's going on with her, but she's mad

"Ma'am, exactly how soon would you like to be in Melian? Engineering indicates they can give you Warp 9.8 but only for 10 hours at best."

"That position, Mr Scott, would not only be unavailing but also undignified."

[Bridge]

Nevir turned to the Captain and sighed.  "Reyes too?  I swear these people are messing with the entire crew." he said, shaking his head.  Personnel was his responsibility as First Officer.  Which meant that unless the Captain wanted a personal hand.. this was his responsibility.

He thought about calling Reyes but figured in this case he should wait for her to arrive.  Reyes was a good Chief, he would hate to soil her record with such a minor infraction.  Still.. he should be ready just in case.

Kyle smiled at Vinnie. It seemed as if he had known her forever. And he could never get used to seeing her in a Security role. Her tiny stature made it something to see. Everyone always took her for granted due to her size but he had seen her take down some gorilla's in the time they had served together.

"I don't think you'll need assistance. Hell, you'd probably take both of them out on their best day. They'd be fools to try anything with you." Kyle said. "Let me get your signature here." he told her as he extended a PADD to her. This would show the transfer from Sickbay to Security for paperwork reasons. "So. How's little Alan doing?" he asked as she signed the PADD.

Bridge

Katcha smirked slightly.

"I wish it was only a third Commander!" She replied, rather heavily on the irony, as she concentrated on the readouts.

Captain Leela Kaz, Commanding Officer

[Bridge]

Leela sat in her chair as she listened closely to the conversation between the Ms. Fillitov and he Executive Officer. She placed her forehead in the palm of her hand and rubbed it aggressively. With her head still in her hand Leela began to mutter. "For the love of god I need a drink." She lifted her head and looked to Commander Nevir. "Commander, why don't you and Ms Fillitov see to the ambassador and his delegation's needs; and send the ambassador my regards for not dealing with them personally. I'm not looking for a court martial this week."

Quote from: Sassa

[Bridge]

Sassa resisted the urge to say 'The Captain would have liked us there yesterday...' and instead turned to the Captain.

"Ma'am, exactly how soon would you like to be in Melian? Engineering indicates they can give you Warp 9.8 but only for 10 hours at best."

"Seeing as we still have several days in our journey; I don't think burning our engines is best. If they can give me 7.5 for the net few days. That would be alright." She said looking down towards the helm.

I'm not looking for a court martial this week."


Nevir smirked, and nodded.  "Aye ma'am, of course.  I'll also take Reyes... if she hasn't snapped yet." he said, as he stood up. 

"Alright, Filitov, lets go see what-"

[Bridge]

Kali almost went through the sliding doors of the turbolift and stopped at the scene before her. There by the captain's chair was not their male captain but their female Chief Engineering Officer - and wayReally.‘Psyche!'favorite hot beverageActingsad. The deception! How could you let them convince you to take the piss out of me, Len?! And a science console to boot!"

What he absolutely did not expect in the slightest when he got interrupted was to have Kali suddenly storm onto the bridge in a tirade very unbecoming of a senior officer.  Nevir stood silent, with the rest of the bridge, as she slammed each person she saw with a verbal assault.  The Bajoran was paitent, and then turned to the Captain, giving her the look of 'I'll take care of this.', considering her headache.

"Lieutenant Commander, that is enough!" he said, calm, but firm, as he gestured to Kachina to leave her station and walked over to Kali.  He was going to take her with him anyways, especially after this mishap.

"We are going to see the ambassadors, and you are coming with us.  Especially after that stunt you pulled in Ops.  Let's go.  Lieutenant, with me." he said, herding the two ladies into the turbolift.  He gave the destination to make the lift move, and then decided now it was the time to confront Kali.

"Kali, we really can't have you breaking down on us now.  We are almost done with this mission.  Then things can go back to normal routine.  But I can't afford to lose my security chief now.  Dr. Sukal has enough on his plate as it is."  he said, letting the words hang in the air.  He waited another minute before frowning and then turning to Kali.

"Science?  Really?  You should know the difference between Warp Mechanics and Warp Theory.  I know you weren't around when I was a Department Officer, but surely I told you that I wore gold.  And that whole thing on the Bridge... what was your role, Captain?"

Kali flinched at Nevir's serious tone. Before she could even open her mouth to defend herself, Nevir escorted her out with Filitov in tow, and she suddenly felt lightheaded and a bit sick.

"I'm not kidding, Commander!" she demanded through the heaviness in her throat. Loss of control, panic - her PTSD was kicking in. "This isn't funny! You can't-"

But he just kept continuing.

"I'm not the security chief! I'm not!" Her voice was starting to crack. Sukal wasn't a doctor - he was her superior on deck 15. Next level of the disorder: fear. This time her voice did crack. "I didn't earn that rank! I'm just an operations crewman-"

He just kept going like she was supposed to know all these things. Her breathing was turning erratic. If she couldn't get a hold of herself in time, she was going to have a full-blown panic attack.

Hold it together.
If she couldn't call on her Starfleet training for times like these, she was really going to turn into an ugly mess. Nothing was making sense. And if this really was a joke, she wanted off this blasted ship. No one could be this mean-spirited - not the entire crew.

She covered her mouth and stilled her thoughts. Let's say this was really happening, Kali. Mirror universe, an advanced trickster god, hell - pod people be damned - what was she going to do?

First priority is to the Captain. And if not the Captain, the XO - the real ones, or at least the ones real to her. Secure, reanalyze, regroup. Her breathing slowed down as the objective was repeated in her head over and over.

"S-sorry, Tekin..." Kali furiously wiped her eyes. "My thing. You know. The stress of the mission probably triggered it." And if PTSD wasn't in this universe's medical file, well now it was. "I think I'm gonna throw up."

[Bridge]

"Seeing as we still have several days in our journey; I don't think burning our engines is best. If they can give me 7.5 for the net few days. That would be alright." She said looking down towards the helm.

[Bridge]

Largely trying to ignore the fracas with the XO and Ms Reyes she answered the Captain.

"Acknowledged, Ma'am" Sassa snapped off and got straight onto Engineering.

=/\=Helm to Engineering, Captain Kaz indicates Warp 7.5 for a few days will be sufficient, thank you.  Helm out=/\=

She settled down to await the boost to power.  In the meantime she plotted several different courses to their destination, most only shaved mere minutes, or perhaps an hour at most off their destination.  However one took a whole day off but it was through an asteroid belt.

"Ma'am, I have been calculating various routes to Melian, one of which would get us there 23hours and 43 mins sooner, however it is through an asteroid belt, I am confident that myself or anyone of our flight operatives could get us through safely, it's not a particularly dense asteroid belt, although Sciences could predict that better.  I have sent the plotted course to your arm PADD for you to look at Ma'am, it's easier to see what I mean on a diagram."

"That position, Mr Scott, would not only be unavailing but also undignified."
