S12 - M10: Humility's Right Hand

First Officer's Log,

After a bit of a detour, the Discovery has finally made it to Starbase Columbus after an extended mission into the edges of the Delta Quadrant.  While we missed out on a persistent pain in my side, we have brought the civilian Dan Damian Adams and the criminal Johan to the Starbase for... hopefully completely separate paths ahead.  Our science Chief is having second thoughts, and may have to recuse herself as a witness to the court-martial of her former superior.

And to top the cherry, Captain T'Ra Jones has decided that she too wishes to relinquish her post, leaving the Disco without a Captain, and a medical officer when she takes her husband with her.  I wish T'Ra the best, and I am glad to call her friend.  Of course the expression 'don't thank me yet' is really coming to mind....



With the ship on shore leave, Nevir's destination was to the administration offices within the operations section of Columbus.  While the Discovery went through some vastly needed refits and security upgrades, the ship was left with a starbase skeleton crew. There were whispers of a crew shake up, and it seemed like no one on board would be safe from transfer.  Well... almost no one. 

Nevir entered the office with a PADD in hand, holding his new transfer orders.  Sort of... Apparently T'Ra's secret mission paid off, and Nevir was offered what he never thought he would get... command.

With the secretary waving him through, Nevir walked through and stood at attention with the PADD behind him, in front of Admiral Adeyemi.  Here is where he would find out if these were real, or a joke.

"Admiral, Commander Tekin Nevir, reporting as ordered, sir."

[Ardyn's temporary quarters, Starbase Columbus]
Ardyn was currently bent over the toilet, still waiting for her nausea and morning sickness to pass so she could get to work, a miserable feeling as her symptoms were finally seeming to catch up to her. She didn't have it for these last couple months, why couldn't her luck have spared her the whole first trimester?

Emptying her stomach one more time, Ardy got up and straightened herself, catching a brief glimpse at the barely visible bump on her abdomen. It was coming, all right. Was she ready? She had no idea. But currently, she had a few more pressing things to be doing
Heading into the bridge of the Disco, she nodded to the crew on duty before running a diagnostic on the flight systems. Boring stuff, as she would have preferred to be off doing some shuttle runs, but someone had to do it, and she sure as heck didn't want Shawhan messing up any of her settings. Looking around, she realized that Steve was off somewhere. He probably was playing with someone somewhere.

[USS Discovery - Bridge]
The Ops department drew straws to choose who would have to man the Ops station on the bridge, and Jeb literally drew the short straw. That's why, while the rest of Ops were wandering the station, he was here "scheduling". Of course, since there wasn't much to be scheduled (most of the crew was on the base), "scheduling" meant "admiring the sleekness of his console and/or staring out at the walls of the spacedock"
Eventually, that got dull, so he peeked over at what the conn officer was doing. A diagnostic, as it happened - a mostly automated task.
So, on a multi-use panel (that was unused) between the two seats, Jeb drew a square grid, 3 squares to a side.
In the central square, he put an X.
Then, he gently tapped the top of the console to get the Conn officer (Lt. Jaeger, was it?) to notice.

I may fall down on my face almost every day, but I always get back up with a smile on my face.

The Bajoran was stunned.  Not that it did happen, but that it could happen.  He did his best to sign any sign of emotion, but found he couldn't hold back a smile, especially when the hand was held up.  Nevir quickly switched which hand he was holding his orders in order to reach over and shake the Admiral's hand.

"Aye sir... thank you, sir." he said, as it slowly started to sink in.  The Bajoran nodded, letting the hand fall.

"Er... well... it's incorrectly titled, sir, but here is my report from our initial excursions into the Delta Quadrant.  I included a list of recommended upgrades to our main computer and power systems, and request for replacement crew.  I believe our Chief Medical Officer requested to be demoted to medical officer.  And we have Mr. Spielenburg in custody in the Brig, sir.  Oh, and the rescued pilot, Mr Adams.  I didn't bring it up to him, but there looks like a former Starfleet record for him."

The Lieutenant accepted, going for the bottom left. Jeb smiled broadly, his smile emulating a level of confidence he developed. Ardy engaged with him, with what may have been a smirk or a smile. Perhaps more importantly, neither Captain Jones nor Commander Tekin were watching. Jeb wasn't on the spot, and that realization imbued him with a confidence he rarely showed otherwise.
"I've only been on the ship for a few days," he explained, answering Ardy's question. "Crewman Jeb Schrock."
He reached for a handshake with his right hand, while putting an X in the top-right corner using the left. It was quite an acrobatic feat, even with his rather tall frame.
In the background, he faintly heard footsteps, too faint and too rapid to be human, which for the moment he chose to disregard.

[Starbase Columbus - Neural Core]

T'Prina sat calmly, downloading lesson plans and other learning related activities into the central console. ANaLYN, the starbase's AI, was sprawled across the floor, in the midst of a loud tantrum. Small arms and legs flailed about, in the focused yet effortless manner of a young child. The Vulcan showed no emotion, other than a small line between her swooped eyebrows. Whether this was caused by amusement or irritation was anyone's guess.

"Mama Prina, you can't goooo!" The little girl wailed between high pitched sobs. "You just got back and it's not fair! Mack'em is leaving too!"

T'Prina considered the file on gormaganders that she had added in with the rest of the lessons. The population of the so-called 'space whales' had been brought back from near extinction recently. While not one of the aquatic beasts that usually captured her charge's attention, it was still a fascinating creature the girl might find interesting. Certainly the methods for preservation and re-habitation would be useful in future scenarios, from a xeno-zoological view point. She spared the distressed child a glance then.

"The Admiral and I both have our orders, little one. We are Starfleet and we go where we are needed." She did not want to state out loud that in her heart, she wished to remain to oversee ANaLYN's growth and development. Not even to herself would she admit she still scanned the crowds in the Promenade, looking for a familiar, worn coat. Teeth worried at her bottom lip as her thoughts drifted back to her recent trip to Vulcan, and what she had discovered there. With a curt shake, she banished the thought back to whence it came. There was no one she wanted to discuss such a personal and disturbing matter with, and it was best ignored for now.

ANaLYN was unaffected by the Vulcan's personal thoughts, as she wasn't privy to them. What she did know, is she didn't want her 'parents' to leave the Starbase. "Mack'em is a boss. Maybe he can make you stay if we ask him nice?" The little girl looked up, cheeks flushed and long brown hair in a tangle, headband and faux Vulcan ears askew. There was a hopeful glint in her slightly damp eyes, though.

T'Prina tilted her head, slightly bemused at her theatrics and sudden attitude change. "I... I do not think that is how this works."

At your smallest components, you are indistinguishable from a forest fire.

'Jebby?' Jeb was a little puzzled by the nickname. He hadn't been called that before. Not that it bothered him much, or that he'd challenge a superior officer over it. He reckoned it could suit him decently well.
As he analyzed the board, and realized that the only way for one to win is if the other made a blunder, the doors came open and in came Steve, a velociraptor moving at top speed (dazzlingly fast for someone who grew up with horse-drawn buggies). Jeb looked up, lost his train of thought, and absentmindedly put an X in the top-left corner. He looked at the bundle of feathers coming at Ardy, and realized that the claws he heard running were Steve's.
"So, Ardy, however did you folks come to have Steve?"
Of all the questions he had about the ship (many of which were more technical), this was the one that fascinated him the most. There was no explanation he had heard so far that was beyond hearsay or that made sense.

[Starbase Columbus: Promenade]

The last time Alex had spent any large amount of time on Columbus, he had been newly posted in as her JAG, though he still wasn't sure if it was his ability, or lack thereof, which got him shifted back to an active starship. He hadn't been a father either, or at least the closest thing to one yet. And in Ardyn, that time was ticking down. It was still overwhelming at moments, though he was coming to terms with it.

Pausing infront of a random shop, Alex found himself looking at the storefront merchandise curiously; coincidentally enough, it just so happened to be a children's clothing boutique. Picking up a tiny pair of shoes absentmindedly, he smiled slightly before setting them back down and turning to watch the turbolifts leading to Ops. Somewhere up there, Tekin was picking up their new orders which would inevitably propel Discovery back into the hectic fray she seemed destined for. With those orders, would also be new crewmates, one of whom he had worked with briefly before. "Computer, locate Lieutenant T'Prina?"

=/\="Lieutenant T'Prina is in the Neural Core"=/\=

Well of course she is. There were some family which would be harder than others to say goodbye to. Unwilling to interrupt, Alex continued on his leisurely stroll on the Promenade.

"Nothing in the world is more dangerous than sincere ignorance and conscientious stupidity. The hottest place in Hell is reserved for those who remain neutral in times of great moral conflict." -MLK, Jr.

The handshake dispensed with, Adeyemi sat and waved for Tekin to do the same. He also waved when the new commanding officer gave his report.

"Good to know, captain," The admiral said, unknowingly giving the other man his due for the first time. He accepted the report. "But she's your ship. Take command, and let me know if you need anything. Dismissed, captain."
